Master password comes up when I launch FF - can't proceed without it.

Thank you very much for the heads up though.... That's hilarious. Bigger than most security holes I've seen in IE

Not inviting a flame, just stating FACT. :)

Remotely exploitable security holes are much more dangerous than something you need physical access to exploit. Is your computer bolted to your desk? No! Well someone could just up and throw it out the window. Even affects linux! OMG!

Yeah, that's kinda why I edited my post. And Mastershakes too. I trust myself but that's all. And I only trust myself to a degree. :D

The worse thing about all this is that some people are sooo damn lazy that they will save their login and pass for their online credit card sites their online banking, all kinds of stuff just so they don't have to go fumbling with their PDA or little book of logins and passwords.

by default i didn't think with IE or FF saved passwords from secure sites...never have for me

also, if you set a master password, it promts you for it before it autofills any login forms...at least mine does

Yeah but if you disect the file (what file? huh? where?) and copy/paste into your own it will list the site and the password in your saved passwords. And it even works if the computer you get the file from has a master password. Remember it only asks for your master when you go to a site that you have listed. When you disect this ummm, file you are only getting the sections that you ummm, want. So even if said computer has a master it doesn't matter. Really scarry shiit.

I noticed the saved username and password setting on firefox. That is how i caught my boyfriend looking at things he wasn't supposed to be looking at. hehe. anyway, you can turn it off and i do recommend it just in case if someone does try and get into your computer while you are away. easy access to any website you have registered to.
