Researcher Warns Of Security Hole In KeePass Password Manager

Quote:
Users of the free, open source KeePass password manager got unwelcome news on Tuesday, after a private security researcher claimed to have discovered a remotely exploitable security hole that could give an attacker access to unencrypted user passwords. However, KeePass's creator calls the hole minor, and unlikely to be used in an attack.

If I understand correctly the person being exploited has to help by doing dumb things or their is no exploitable security hole, is that correct?
