comment Should I take care when entering incorrect passwords in untrustworthy websites?
@tylerl password software encrypts passwords so that they are reversible to be feed to the forms and applications that you input them into. Typically passwords stored in a database are hashed so they are not reversible. I am referring to the encryption of locally stored passwords in a password store application like KeePass or LastPass.

Don't you think that the problem with any password storing software is that the passwords are reversable. If the machine is infected it will leave all the passwords open to decryption.

comment What can a hacker do when he has physical access to a system?
If a "hacker" with any real experience or skill has physical access to a PC, I would just throw away the hard drive and start fresh. Hours could be spent trying to find all the possible backdoors that could have been left in the machine.

comment Whistleblowing, business ethics and credit card data
PCI-DSS says that any credit card data leaks that are caused by a uncomplaint company can include huge fines. Ethically speaking this is not a safe system for the customers personal data even though it is hand writen.

Definitly, but it would prevent them if they were trying the method he asked about.
