Password Scrambler

Remember that javascript password hasher I was talking about? Well now there is a full firefox extension. They want you to click on an asp an auto-install from their server, however, which is irritating. I want to download it and examine it at my leisure before installing it. Call me paranoid, but I think it is worth a little extra time to understand the tool that will be holding all of my passwords in its greedy little fingers.

Update – I downloaded it from extensionmirror it seems that there is a nice binary .dll in there. I don’t understand why and I don’t trust it, so I’m going to try to make the javascript thing work to my satisfaction. In the immortal words of Monty Python “Strange women lying in web-sites distributing binary scramblers is no basis for a system of trusted security.”
