Re: Extremely Dangerous

"What advice does anyone have to offer?"

Don't keep anything that really needs to be secure on a Windows PC. That's nothing to do with how secure Windows is - but that any flaw is going to be exploited to a far higher degree than on any other OS. Its just not worth it for most blackhats to go after Linux or MacOS when there are so many rich pickings elsewhere. Security by obscurity is a layer not to dismiss lightly.

Hence those of us who use KeePass on Linux/MacOS are shifting uneasily in our seats but far from panicking. But what news of a rewrite? I'm guessing this needs much more than a patch to sort.
