One of my Win7 m/cs has been hacked. From time to time, the hack asked me for my ‘master password’, presumably for KeyPass. Since I intend doing a clean install Win8, from DVD, I wondered if I could safely move KeyPass to a flash drive, i.e. without taking the hack with it, and then copy it to the new installation.
I haven’t entered my KeyPass password since I discovered the hack, but wondered if copying and pasting my KeyPass from a flash drive might be a secure way of accessing it on another m/c. Alternatively, I wondered if using KeyScrambler might be a safe way of accessing my KeyPass from its present location. Another thought: open it in Sandboxie.
Any ideas, you clever people?
Incidentally, since running CCleaner, MalwareBytes and Windows Security Essentials scans, I have had no further requests for ‘master password’; but I’m taking no chances, in case the hack is ‘playing possum’.
