Password management site plugs info-leak bug

Q: Password management site plugs info-leak bug

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/03/01/password_management_site_xss_bug/Password management site LastPass has plugged a security hole in its website that created a means to extract the email addresses - though not the passwords - of enrolled users. The cross-site scripting bug meant that logged-in users induced to visit a malicious site would disclose their email addresses and sites associated with a LastPass account, along with password reminders and a list of IP addresses used to access the site.The bug was discovered by independent security researcher Mike Cardwell, who was unable to exploit the flaw to extract passwords.LastPass - which boasts close to a million members - stores website login details in an encrypted container, safeguarded by a master password. Users log in to extract this information either directly via the website or by using a browser extension.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

How to force IE 11 to ask for saving credentials again for just one web site, after having accidentally sellect not to remember password for that particular site. Please, take into account that:


- I'm totally aware that storing credentials is not a good security practice, but in my particular case this is what I need to do.

- I know that reseting IE or similar approachs will do the job, but doing that I'll lost more tan 70 web sites credentials. I need a solution not involving loose all the web credentials stored.
- I also know that there is way to do the trick "lying" to IE using a modified but similar username, but this only works in some web sites, depending on the kind of login mechanism used. In my particulare case this trick also does not work.
- I also know that there was a registry hack for this particular problem, but this does not work with IE last versions.


Any help would be very apreciated.

I think a virus got me after i downloaded some suspicious zip. deleted the zip anyway. Posted my hojack log in the security forum hoping someone will be able to identify it if it still exists.

Heres whats happened: Turned on computer. Main programs cannot be executed. either the Exe files are gone or it doesnt work. Happened for Adobe reader, microsoft word, excel, visio, my antivirus program. Also for IBM access and the "IBM client security software" for those who use IBM.
So basically three types of program exes gone: office applications, IBM security/help stuff, antivirus prog.

What i've done: -Reinstalled antivirus "antivir" program. -tried system restore, but still couldnt execute main programs, so undid restore.

Anyone know about such a virus? Or any idea on how to find the lost exes . If nothing can be done, i supposed Ill have to reinstall office again.
My main concern: Even if i reinstall office, how do I restore IBM access and the client security program? I think i need these to install/download updates, etc. i know nothing on reformatting blah blah stuff.

not sure if I conveyed my situation clear enough. siggggh.

If you have a virus that bad and can't fix it you will have to reinstall the entire OS to get rid of it. You might try running one of those free online virus scans.

Hi folks.

I was a little upset when my World of Warcraft account got hijacked and all my unworldly goods disappeared into the virtual pockets of some professional WoW hacker - not so much for the in-game loss; I've been getting a bit bored with it, anyway - but because Blizzard Entertainment Inc., purveyors of said game, are accusing me of harbouring a key-logger or other trojan.

Me? I'm a cynical old hacker who's been tampering with technology for 40 years. I've programmed at embedded control level, and I've written Windows applications. I'd like to see the social engineering method that could persuade me to install a key-logger.

But - even the best of us can slip up, so if I follow Blizzard's recommended steps, I should be able to reassure myself, as well as them, that the password leak isn't at my end. Here goes:

Step 1: Use ATF Cleaner to delete everything except stored passwords, lol. OK, but I don't think there was a key-logger program in the caches of my various browsers. If that's possible, maybe it should do Google Chrome as well?

Step 2: AdAware. Hmm. I uninstalled this program some time ago. I'm not convinced about the professionalism of the development team. However, it's on Blizzard's list so I re-installed it and ran it. After a full scan, it identified a number of tracking cookies and 2 "suspicious" files. It took me another hour to write these off as false positives, since AdAware ... Read more

I've been thinking about the use of password managers lately and wondering whether it's worth exploring an alternative.

The problem, as I see it, is with having one master password - I know this is supposed to be kept securely by the developers, but I've heard of several security scares in the last few years. Of course, this is much more secure than simply using the same password everywhere, but if hackers were able to gain access to people's master passwords, surely it would be a goldmine for them and disatrous for everyone else! Even if the master passwords are well protected, this is possible, right?

Back to the alternative... what do you think about the possibility of devising a new unique password each time, writing it down, and physically guarding it. However, this would just be for the accounts you deem most vital, so a password manager could still be used for less important accounts. I know it sounds inconvenient, and I suppose it would only work if you're not prone to losing things, but could be a viable option?

I would like if someone would rank and price web site builders. I need to set up a web site and I have not build one in a very long time. I would like software that is easy to use but with some complexity for later on when I am more knowledgeable.
 

A:Need info about web site builders

Unless your supremely confident in your abilities I strongly suggest you just get one built.

Even more seriously, if you want to do it don't even bother with a normal "website" and head straight for a Wordpress install, as your inexperience can leverage so much more control. Adding pages, comments, or customising is possible in an almost infinite number of ways as well. Plus once you've settled with a design, adding a new page is as simple as clicking new page from within the admin panel, naming a title for it, and then typing the content and hitting publish... Simples!

For an example of two, check out two of my sites:

www.leekaelin.co.uk
www.vvon.co.uk

Both are running Wordpress, and both are fantastic with the correct tools for SEO etc.

Just got on the computer now, and suddenly everything seems to be slow, I checked the memory and found out that some program is using 94% of the memory, when I was looking for the program I found out that no program is using that amount of memory, 200 at most.

I downloaded RAMmap to map out the memory, and found out that about 94% of the memory is Nonpaged Pool (unallocated?)

For my.yahoo to open, I have to sign in with a username and a password. Until recently, my.yahoo would open automatically without my signing in. However, once I started fooling around with LastPass (a pw manager) and two other cookie eaters (CCleaner and Maxthon's Smart Cookie Cleaner), in order to get to my.yahoo, I now have to sign in.

I mentioned this yesterday in another thread but thought it might be better suited in its own thread here. Yesterday, I was looking up a possible birthday present for a friend on Google, and when I went I clicked on a link to the laracroftonline forums, I got redirected to url4short.info, a site with lots of dodgy-looking ads.

Hi

What is the 'best practice' for managing one's passwords?

A) HOW SHOULD I STORE PASSWORDS?
Problems:
1. I need to manage a fairly large number (i.e. 50+). So there are too many to remember.

2. Obviously I don't want to keep them inside a simple unencrypted text file, in case my data gets hacked.

3. If I download dedicated password application how can I trust it?(!)

4. I don't trust 'The Cloud' nor any of the big data owners: google, apple, amazon, drop-box et al.

5. I don't want to be tied to anything that I cant migrate with me onto my next hardware, when I come to upgrade my PC(s).

Either way I dont really want to pay anything (certainly not more than a few dollars) for this security.

I was thinking of using something like TrueCrypt to create a virtual drive (that I encrypt robustly) and then storing my passwords in an ordinary text file.
That way I would have a single master password (for TrueCrypt) which would give access to all the other passwords.
[Aside: Obviously if I forget my master password I'm screwed!]
B) PASSWORD CONVENTIONS
As you know many sites require passwords that meet specific rules e.g.
- At least one upper AND one lower case letter
- At least one digit
- No tripplets (three characters the same next to each other) (iTunes!)
- No more than 16 characters

Hello, there are several listed at the end HERE.  Some free and some not.
 
I have to add that I find the Address book I have where I write ALL of them in is invaluable.
I once had a drive die and ughhh!!

I'm drowning in a mix of scrambled uppercase, lowercase, letters, numbers and symbols here. Drowning, I tell you.

I'm looking for one of those apps that remembers them all for you, and even enters them into webpages for you when you hit a preset key combination, e.g Ctrl. X.

Now, these are passwords, mind you. The program should be encrypted and secure. And preferably of a small size, so I can install it on a thumbdrive.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

I am thinking about creating a password database in MS Access. Does anyone know where to find a template for type of database. I would want to encrypt it but I have found a lot of software to get the password of a Microsoft Access Database, Is this software good enough to protect all of my passwords? I had bought one, but it seems like Microsoft Access could do a much better job than the one I bought.
Thanks,
Joe

Joe, are you talking about a Database that contains Passwords?
Which I assume that you want to protect?

As with a lot of people, I have many tens of web accounts of various sorts, including one on this site. While I do not have the exact same user name and password for all of them, there is a fair degree of repetition. In addition, I do not change the passwords all too often.

So, I am interested in some secure password management solution that can lead to more secure practices and if possible, help with more occasional use of public shared computers. I came across WIseKey / WIseForm solution here. While not free, it is well within what I'd pay to sleep better. I have two questions:

What are the better solutions for consumers (not corporate networks)?
Has anyone have view on or experience with WIseKey or another solution that they can share?
Am I being over sensitive to this threat?
I know this is not the typical 'Help! Blue screen!" posts even I usually post, but I am hoping I can get some advice from the highly knowledgeable people that post on this board.
 

A:web single sign on / password management solutions... WIseKey?

I haven't used WIseKey, but I really like KeePass Password Safe, a free open-source password manager. It's easy to use, you open it with a single password, then when go to a site you just drag-and-drop your username and password into the appropriate boxes.

There's a portable version that you can put on a USB stick for when you use public shared computers.

Getting ready to reformat my drive and reinstall my op system (Win98 SE).

Rather than start over from scratch I was hoping to copy off my favorites folder and such so getting my system back to where it was is less work.

Where does windows store password info (such as the login for this site)?

Hello.

Well that all depends on "a password for what function." If you are referring to Internet Explore / IE, then you can click on Internet Options > Content > Personal Information > AutoComplete. AutoComplete is a nice feature to any browser, but it is too much of a risk these days.

Hope I was of some assistance.

I know you guys/gals are volunteers But how long before a topic is answered?The help page said a few days.I would like to also learn to do what you guys/Gals are doing so I can also help out here but no slots are available.===========Hello While we understand your frustration at having to wait, please note that Bleeping Computer deals with several hundred requests for assistance such as yours on a daily basis. As a result, our backlog is quite large as are other comparable sites that help others with malware issues. Although our HJT Team members work on hundreds of requests each day, they are all volunteers who work logs when they can and are able to do so. No one is paid by Bleeping Computer for their assistance to our members.Further, our malware removal staff is comprised of team members with various levels of skill and expertise to deal with thousands of malware variants, some more complex than others. Although we try to take DDS/HJT logs in order (starting with the oldest), it is often the skill level of the particular helper and sometimes the operating system that dictates which logs get selected first. Some infections are more complicated than others and require a higher skill level to remove. Without that skill level attempted removal could result in disastrous results. In other instances, the helper may not be familiar with the operating system that you are using, since they use another.

I tried to log in to Firefox forum, but had forgotten my password.  To correct this, I tried to get my password reset via email, but found that I had forgotten my username, which I originally had to modify because my name was in use.  My email address was not enough, they wanted the username too, so my application was not accepted.  I tried registering, which confirmed that my email address was already in use.  Dead end. What a silly problem.  Is there any solution other than getting a new email address?
