comment Security implications of android rooting
It is certainly smart to be cautious about rooting a phone and be wary of apps that do root. However, be even more leary of the service provider and hw provider. Motorola intercepted usernames and passwords for many if not all websites and stored them in their own proxy database. Then would send them without SSL. beneaththewaves.net/Projects/Motorola_Is_Listening.html

comment Security implications of android rooting
2a1: Most of the rooting I have done on my phone is not from an app, but using a USB cable to get the ADB shell on the phone. Usually, it involved changing file permissions long enough to replace a binary with the existing shell. In that new shell, bootstrap yourself further to root. In short, Linux scripts are plain text and readable with a text editor, so open source.

comment How to detect Meterpreter and similar malware?
The malicious dll is most likely uploaded from a remote harddisk directly into the vulnerable process RAM.

revised How secure are my passwords in the hands of Firefox using a Master Password?
Empasized that a machine level rootkit is not necessary to monitor keystrokes. Just some javascript.

comment Storing passwords online using Gmail documents
In the past, there were many cracking programs to crack an Excel spreadsheet password. Not sure if that has changed much in the last few years.
