I saw a statistic today that really caught my eye. pcworld.com.nz ran an article that discussed the proliferation of botnets in the last 2 years. They reported:
About 38% of the credentials stolen by Torpig were obtained from the password manager of browsers.
It is certainly not a surprise to us here at LastPass, we have learned first hand how easy it is to get to the passwords that were saved by Firefox and IE.
So use LastPass. And follow our advice to import all of your browser’s passwords and delete them from your computer! It will make you safer.
