" Password Safe. The security of Twofish in a password database Support Password Safe is now an open source project.

Password Safe

As of February 7, 2014, the latest Windows version is 3.33. A Linux version is currently in beta. To download the program, or for technical support, please visit its Sourceforge page. Various third-party ports, clones, and readers are also available. Many computer users today have to keep track of dozens of passwords: for network accounts, online services, premium web sites. With Password Safe, a free utility designed by Bruce Schneier, users can keep their passwords securely encrypted on their computers.

Password Safe protects passwords with the Twofish encryption algorithm, a fast, free alternative to DES. Password Safe features a simple, intuitive interface that lets users set up their password database in minutes. See the Twofish page for more information on the Twofish algorithm, including links to other products that use Twofish. Photo of Bruce Schneier by Per Ervland. Schneier on Security.

General Security Information - How to tighten Security Settings and Warnings

This advice is reposted from the advice given by Tony Klein, the acknowledged spyware & malware expert who supports many forums on the net. I have added a few minor updates to it You usually get infected because your security settings are too low. Here are a number of recommendations that will help tighten them, and which will contribute to making you a less likely victim: 1) Watch what you download! 2) Go to IE > Tools > Windows Update > Product Updates, and install ALL Security Updates listed. 3) Go to Internet Options/Security/Internet, press 'default level', then OK. Now you will be asked whether you want ActiveX objects to be executed and whether you want software to be installed.

So why is activex so dangerous that you have to increase the security for it? And some more advice: 4) Install SpywareBlaster. 5) Another brilliant program by Javacool we recommend is SpywareGuard.
