Default How Browsers Store Your Passwords (and Why You Shouldn't Let Them)

From http://raidersec.blogspot.in/2013/06...words-and.html

I've always considered it best to not have browsers store passwords directly, but why? How easy can it be for malware to pull these passwords off of infected computers? Since sources are a bit tough to find in one place, I've decided to post the results here, as well as show some simple code to extract passwords from each browser's password manager.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
