comment Why should I run OWASP Broken Web Applications Project as host only or NAT?
So it is for protecting the Virtual Machine from other computers, rather than the other way around?

comment How secure are my passwords in the hands of Firefox using a Master Password?
I finally found the time to test this and it seems activating sync requires my master password, if I have one set. This should make your point a non-issue.

comment How long should the password be?
Granted. I was going for a short, usefull answer. 16 random characters, upper and lower case, and numbers and special characters is a good minimum. Five diceware words is superior to this.

Hmm. Define "this crap" please. :-) Also, I believe the password file on Firefox is encrypted

Sounds correct, but irrelevant. This is true even if I don't let Firefox save my passwords. The root-kit problem is true for all applications on the infected computer, not specific to Firefox.
