connect4 Posted December 20, 2009 Report Share Posted December 20, 2009 For example, theres a program called Roboform that has a password filling feature that is supposed to be safer than manually typing in your password for websites. http://www.roboform.com/anti-keylogger.html "..Quick Typing. Roboform enters password quickly and it presses Submit button quickly, so many keyloggers will not be fast enough to get web page password from the page..." What about using Batch files or ME Macros? I mean would it be safer or more vulnerable to use a batch file or a macro to input your password into a program, for example TrueCrypt password prompt. For example: If I were to mount a TrueCrypt container, it would pop up a password promt in which I would have to manually enter in my password. Now, would it make it any more or less safe using a macro or batch file to mount my TrueCrypt container? Example: Create a batch file that uses TrueCrypt command line feature to mount my container. Note: This is assuming that no malware or user can access your batch files or macros that would contain your password/s. I want to find out if there are any vulnerabilities to using batch files or macros while they are running. (Hypothetical example: using bat files=> copies ur password somewhere that is insecure that manually typing doesn't do.)
