Comment Re:KeePass? (Score 3, Informative) 114

I have KeePass installed on my computers and KeyPassDroid on my phone and tablet. The file is shared between them all using Dropbox. This way, if I change it one place it's available at all the others automagically, and in case it gets corrupted I have a 30-day history of changes at Dropbox's site. I've had no problems, I like its built-in and configurable password generator, and it works a treat with the KeeFox plugin for Firefox.

(YMMV in that you may have issues with Dropbox, but for me, it works.)

Submission + - Tor traffic quadruples, security company attributes surge to Botnet ( 1

hypnosec writes: A cyber defense and IT security company has claimed that the reason behind recent surge in number of clients connecting to Tor is in fact a relatively unknown botnet and not NSA or genuine adoption of Tor. In late August there was a huge increase in Tor network traffic and number of clients connecting to the Tor network. As of this writing number of connections has quadrupled with over 2,500,000 clients connecting to the network. According to Fox-it, the surge in traffic is because of a botnet dubbed "Mevade.A", which is known to have Tor connectivity features. The company noted that the botnet may have links to a previously detected botnet dubbed "Sefnit", which also featured Tor connectivity. Fox-it claimed that they have found "references that the malware is internally known as SBC to its operators."

Submission + - Man Tunnels into GameStop, Steals Games ( 1

An anonymous reader writes: Life imitates Minecraft: Computer game piracy is big business, but there are still those who prefer to get their games the old-fashioned way: by digging a tunnel into their local games shop and making off with as much stock as they can carry.
At least, that's the slightly bizarre approach taken by a man from Greeneville, Tennessee, who was arrested late last week after being caught tunnelling into his local GameStop store from an empty adjoining building.
