Yeah, but because LastPass' security model is reasonable and they don't
store master passwords, what the hackers got is less useful than you might
think. Sure, if your master password is weak or your password reminder, if
you use one, is too helpful, you could be at risk. But people who use a
password manager should be sufficiently security-minded to not use either.
IMO, you're better off using a good password manager than not using one
because the alternative is weak passwords, re-used passwords, forgotten
passwords, lost passwords, etc.
