    That article gives good reasons to never use the same password for multiple site or accounts.
    It reminds of the spoof e-mails that I get occasionally relating to ebay.

    and to think, a free little program like KeyScrambler could have helped quite a few.

    I use the secure login extension for firefox. Can someone still record your password if you do not directly type it in? I use kescrambler too BTW.

    The password manager would't put your password into the field anyway right? Since the phishing website has a different url right?

    There probably is no software that would save people from this. If you are going to give someone your password, there is nothing to stop you. :ouch:
