If anyone reading this board uses Password Safe 3.0 (freely available from http://passwordsafe.sourceforge.net/) on any Windows operating system older than XP, then pay a bit of attention.See: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/17200/infoPasswordSafe 3.0 on older Windows platforms will use non-cryptographically secure random number generation. Without getting into technical details, this means that an attacker can break into the Password Safe file much quicker than they should be able to. According to Elcomsoft (who discovered the vulnerability), it would take no more than 6 hours.The total number of all possible seed values is limited by 2^32, soit is quite feasible. Our experiments show that the key can berecovered in less than 6 hours on the single PC (Pentium 4).FWIW,ChicagoNative.
