hey guys, anybody familiar with lastpass here? im thinking about starting to use it by my concern is that if your host (or one of your devices employing last pass) is compromised, wouldnt that essentially give the attacker full access to all your passwords for all your sites? sure if its compromised they could install a key logger without last pass but then theyd only get credentials for the sites i log in to while as opposed to all of them ive ever used last pass on
Yea, I can see down sides to both sides, I'm just wondering if i am opening myself to bigger risk by consolidating all accounts and passwords in one place to where if im compromised im giving the attacker everything in one bow tie package vs them having to extract it manually from a dump of key logs and waiting for me to login to every site that interests them.
Good point. The accounts I care about I login in to regularly from my host anyways so theyd be compromised if the attacker was looking through all keystrokes/pages browsed. Speaking of email, would you recommend not storing your email creds in the password manager then?
@n00b I use a unique password for my email and banking, not saved. But that's not strictly necessary - I only do so because I actually need to log into those without the password manager, so it also needs to be something I can remember.
you just do it so that you can access those off your host? I thought you could get those off the password manager website (at least for last pass)? I havent used it but just what i gather from their marketing material
no you buy refurb (depending on the type of refurb) they never actually fix things, or solve the lemony of them. it is often more like a recycled fail. But discovering WHY a certian model is rejected (general reviews), and seeing if that would effect your specific needs. Regret always comes in the form of reading about the problems of a device , when searching for Why you now have them,
re-box , re-pack get some good ones of those at newegg too, there it might be missing a few screws :-) same thing applies, some of the returns come from post order learning.
I suppose CYA still exists for all situations anyway. 20 great reviews 2 bad ones, get home with the product , and really test and use all aspects of it, you start agreeing with the 2 bad reviews (even though it may not cause a problem for you)
superuser.com/questions/384472/… Cheapskate is one thing :-) but tying to leach a computer expo giveaway that is only 2g :-) One could probably find a place that sells those for 1-2$ each in the thousands.
That is like getting free advertising pens and trying to get the logo off them :-) I think the firmware in those locks a section out, not a partition that a user tossed on?
I figure those locations that have learned how to hack the firmware on usb sticks could probably undo it too. there is at least one place on the web i saw that was trying to fix Fake Usbs . there is usually either a hard device or a mess of software and Bs to have to go through that makes buying a 2gig stick look like childs play
Ahh what some people will go through to save a buck. why just 20 miles from here I can buy gas for 5cents less :-)
still trying to figure out how much the dog can carry :-)
@Psycogeek What I don't like is it's trackball being in the middle. I will sure accidentally roll it with index and finger beside it. I think Logitech M507 Trackball that has it on the left that you control with your thumb is best in this case. I will try it although folks report replacing them once a few years or 1 year and each time quality differs. Too bah I don't have places here that allow test drive it. If you buy and open the package it won't be eligible for returns.
@JourneymanGeek I am in a library connecting through HTTPS to sensitive account. Should I worry about eavesdropping or any hacker activity? I was thinking about using my older laptop at home for VPS purposes to tunnel through. Should I?
@Boris_yo in 'merica you buy , you no like, you return. in most states they must tell you there are no returns, and it has to be on the reciept and all. This new Human Proof packaging , that you have to shred to get into. i really think that stuff tries to keep people from returning, but none of that is my fault, so if it sucks I return, even if it wont fit back in the box ,
