  1. Hi, I'm Megan and I work for AgileBits, the makers of 1Password.

    First of all, I wanted to thank you for taking the time to help your listeners think seriously about the security of their data by discussing the recent news about password breaches. You're right, being aware of the software that you install on your system is the best way to combat many of these attacks.

    I just wanted to clarify that the vulnerability discussed in the research paper does not have the ability to steal the encrypted contents of the 1Password database. For our security expert's thoughts on this research and how it does affect 1Password, please see our blog: https://blog.agilebits.com/2015/06/17/1password-inter-process-communication-discussion/. If you have further questions, we'd love to hear your thoughts in our discussion forums: https://discussions.agilebits.com.
