LastPass XSS vulnerability found, website and browser add-ons affected (updated)

Mike Cardwell, the Stallmanite who recently discovered a fantastically covert way of working out which Web services you're currently logged in to, has found a nasty XSS vulnerability in the LastPass password manager. The cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability not only allows nefarious types to see which sites you've recently logged in to, but it also provides access your email address and...

Built-in Account Manager coming to Firefox, heralds a new age of security and convenience

It's an uncomfortable truth, but your Web browser probably knows more about you than your best friend. It's just a fact of life online. Your browser knows your name, your browsing habits, your interests, your bank balance, your passwords... in essence it really knows everything about you -- and this is something that Mozilla Labs wants to capitalize on! Introducing: the Account Manager add-on...

1Password alpha version available for Chrome(ium)

1Password is finally available for Chrome. Sort of. 1Password is a favorite password manager among Mac users, with a passionate fan base -- and that fan base has been clamoring for a version of 1Password that included Chrome compatibility ever since Chrome was released for the Mac! Well, the time has come, and an alpha version of 1Password has been released that does indeed support Chromium (the...

LastPass brings secure password management to Safari on Mac

LastPass, the secure password management and form filler that was first released for Firefox and Internet Explorer, has welcomed another browser into the fold. Mac users running Safari for their browser can now run a full LastPass plugin rather than relying on the Javascript-powered bookmarklet.

LastPass updates with form filler, releases pocket version

When I first wrote up LastPass, two of the big features it lacked that a lot of people were looking for were portability and the ability to remember form data. Their development crew has been hard at work ever since and have just released a new version of the add-on as well as LastPass Pocket. If you're not familiar with it, it's a plugin for both IE and Firefox designed to securely keep your...

Todd's Favorite Mac Apps: 1Password

Since practically every website requires some sort of user registration, I decided to purchase 1Password to manage all of my login credentials. 1Password is a Mac-only password manager that can also store secure notes, "wallet" information, and identity data. Rather than use a single password for all of the websites I access, or try to create a convoluted password algorithm to have a list of...

Is Lastpass as good as they make it sound?

You've no doubt learned to take the various claims software developers make about their products with a grain of salt, but the gang at Lastpass may be right on with theirs. Lastpass may just be the last password you'll ever have to remember. Other DS bloggers have looked at plenty of other options, like Passpack and good ol' Keepass. Lastpass has put together an extremely worthy competitor, and...

Password management that doesn't suck - Ask DLS

So it took me about a decade, but I've finally reached the breaking point: I have too many usernames and passwords to remember. This came to a head today as I tried to log into a handful web sites to change some billing information and had to make multiple tries to get into half of them, even having to click on the dreaded "Forgot your password?" link once. Enough! There are dozens and dozens of...
