[all variants] Tasks not on taskbar, or hacked?view story

Are Password Managers Really Worth It?view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Given the current spate of password thefts, I'm wondering, again, if I should use a password manager. I'm curious about opinions about them. Are they really secure?
