Fake LastPass phishing app nabs a five-star rating on Apple’s App Store.

The slyly named “LassPass” has earned five stars on Apple’s App Store with just five reviews in total, noted Bleeping Computer — more evidence on how easily ratings can be manipulated. Apple has since removed the app.

As Sean Hollister wrote back in 2021, fraudulent ratings have poisoned Apple’s app review system.
