Windows 7: LastPass password manager gets security patch against password leakage

LastPass password manager gets security patch against password leakage

And, wouldn't you know it, LastPass just pushed out a update that fixes, amongst other things, a security hole that could leak your precious password secrets.

We urge you to grab that update, which came out two days ago, on the grounds that a security hole patched is, simply put, no longer a security hole.

But don't panic, as there are some palliative factors:
The bug affects Internet Explorer users on Windows only.
The bug requires an attacker to perform a memory dump of Internet Explorer.

I'm looking for a password manager that will either automatically enter name and pw for a specific site or at least know where I am and let me click on the appropriate name/pw combination. Anyone know of such a beast or have other suggestions? Thanks, Burt
