If someone can hack 1Password's AES-256 cryptography -- we have a much, MUCH, larger problem. Having unique, long, strong, passwords for each login (where the point of attack will usually happen) is much more secure.

There's a big difference between what Heartbleed is (an OpenSSL bug) and a coordinated "hack."
Ok, thanks. That makes sense.

Just picked up 1Password. Even if I'm not overly concerned about Heartbleed because I have very little damage that can be done to me, I figure the $9 now is worth it for when I actually have important things to guard.

most banks seem to be safe and gmail seems ok as well. I think it'll be ok.

the cause of the "bug" is hilarious though...not so much a bug as it is just bad code.

That's the definition of a bug.

I'd be very weary having something like 1Password on my machine. Especially for the common user who probably has gone and downloaded that MP3 file they really wanted and wasn't aware that binded to it was a virus/trojan that allows a malicious user to remote in and do whatever the hell they want. Tools like that are so easy to use these days, a complete noob to computers could read one of the many guides on the net about it and be up and running and have 10+ "slaves" in a few hours.

In my opinion, (1) go here and keep hitting refresh until you see a string that looks easy to remember, then (2) stop checking that "keep me signed in" button so you are forced to keep manually typing in your password(s) so you come to remember them. It really is very simple just using your brain to manage your passwords. And when it comes to convenience over security, it's an obvious answer to me which one is more important.

technically ya it's a bug but bugs tend to be larger and result in compiling errors and stuff like that.

interesting, I know of no one to have had issues with their google accounts and I can't find legitimate reports of it anywhere. Also Neel Mehta of google security was the guy who discovered it and went public with it, I'd think google knew about the bug well before then and had the necessary patches in place prior to day0.

my yahoo account, on the other hand, absolutely needs a new password.

I disagree with this. If we're ranking, which is rather silly, I'd say compiling errors are less of a bug than Heartbleed is.

If your program doesn't compile you don't have a bug you have an error in the your code. Which is far better because the compiler yells at you and then you fix it and it never ships to the public.

Bugs like this are the worst because they are small enough to not get caught in general testing / code review but big enough to wreck havoc.

Ugh. So much bad advice.
1password doesn't seem to have a linux client. Looked promising too.

Lack of Linux client is the worst sin.

Try KeePass. Free, Open-source, and support for windows / mac / linux and more.

Posted this in the apps thread but thought it would be relevant here too. 1Password is currently 50% off on all platforms.
