Keepass Copy&Paste & AutoType & Browser Plugins

Hi, Nathan,

are there any security concerns regarding Keepass Copy&Paste, AutoType Feature, and Browser Plugins?

Do you commend using a Firefox Plugin(s) for Keepass (which)?



The clipboard thing is always a concern. Once you copy anything, it gets saved to your clipboard. If your system is infected with malware, then it can read the clipboard very easily. AutoType feature or plugin is good for a good password manager. It doesn’t copy it on the clipboard. If the plugin for KeePass is the official one, then yes, it is recommended. Please note that some times these plugins are not authored by the original authors of the application, and that is a bad sign.
