Why worry about this? Someone with access to your computer's memory can intercept the unencrypted data, sure, but who's going to be able to get at your computer? Assuming your computer isn't virus infected, has proper virus software and firewalls, and isn't networked to any other computer that might itself be vulnerable, your memory should be safe from anyone without hands-on access to your comp - and if they have hands-on access, you're doomed anyway.

The vast majority of security breaches are from human engineering (obtaining the "I lost my password" info, or finding a password someone wrote down, or so on), not actual hacking. Keep your virus software up to date, don't network your bank computer to any other computer with internet access, and don't write down your password or allow anyone access to your bank computer.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
