That's just the First search entry on a common search engine, not digging through the blackhat community.


A saying I first hear dfrom my father decafdes ago comes to mind, "Locks only keep honest people honest."

Yea, and they used a simple password as they themselves said. A password found in the password dictionary they used. I assure you my password is not in that dictionary.

Is it Keeppass or Keepass? I am using the portable version of Keepass. It is very feature rich. I can even keep copies of my important papers in the database. But yeah this program has been compromised. I am too lazy to google this again, but the hack is there. No it's not the simple one posted above. A while back some security guy wanted to show this program's vulnerability, so he hacked it.

But that hasn't stopped me from using it because it's better than nothing, way better than nothing.

Lastpass is OK so far...used it about a year. The FREE version is good enough (I think). Can't vouch for deep strength...butt there are many articles online that compare/recommend. Just DuckDuckGo "password managers" and read on. (...and let us know if you come away with the best answer )
