Big security flaws found in popular password managers 1Password, Dashlane, KeePass, and LastPass - But open source KeePass may be least affected

A report by the Independent Security Evaluators (ISE) shows that many popular password managers store their master passwords in plain text, potentially exposing users’ data to hackers.

The ISE tested 1Password, Dashlane, KeePass, and LastPass on Windows, and found that all of these apps “fail in implementing proper secrets sanitisation”.

See https://mybroadband.co.za/news/security/296572-big-security-flaws-found-in-popular-password-managers.html but also click through to the actual report which shares the details of this test along with a summary near the bottom and it is interesting to note that open source KeePass has the least red blocks. These may be potential vulnerabilities but in the real world these are still by far your best protection.
