I'm never sure if Slashdot commenters read the original article or the blurb.
In the article, which I wrote, I explain the precise degree of risk, who is at risk, and how to mitigate.
* Recommending software: I did not write the article about 1Password Pro; Joe Kissell did.
* I do not receive a share of advertising revenue, nor is any my writing for any of many publications based on advertising revenue. I receive a fixed fee arranged in advance. Only the publication knows whether or not advertising was justified.
* Attacked on his income: Neither the publication TidBITS or me personally have any income issues associated with the sale of any security software.
This article was for normal folks, not security experts, and tried to explain in clear terms how to disable (for instance) any PIN-based access or switch away from a numbers-only passwords.
The criticism here seems both misplaced, conspiracy oriented, and not based on a reading of the article.
