I was out with one of my sisters tonight, and, on the way home, she
asked about "Keylogger viruses" ... in particular, if she had saved
her identity and password data for a site (pick a site, any site) so
that when she went to the site, her stuff was auto-filled in, so she
could get to a site, .... and then, after her data had been stored on
her computer, she then got infected by a Keylogger virus, would her
identity and password data be collected by the Keylogger??
At first thought I said "NO", because no keys had been pressed ... but
is it that simple?? Would the keylogger also register that a file had
been accessed to supply the log-in data?? The data didn't come from
the keyboard, but did come from somewhere.
If the password is stored in SQLite database then the entire database
is/can be siphoned off and it can be opened using SQLite Manager - an
Add-On for Firefox. Mozilla is a sponsor of SQLite Database and it
uses it for many things in products. Once the database is in their
hands then they can do many things with it.
I never save passwords in browsers; TB you need to save because of
accessing eMails many times a day.
