Who's using 2FA? Sweet FA. Less than 1 in 10 Gmail users enable two-factor authentication
“less than 10 per cent of active Google accounts use two-step authentication to lock down their services. He also pointed out that a Pew study in 2016 showed only around 12 per cent of web users have a password manager to protect their accounts.”

Flaw In Major Browsers Allows 3rd-Party Scripts to Steal Your Saved Passwords
Security researchers have uncovered how marketing companies have started exploiting an 11-year-old bug in browsers' built-in password managers, which allow them to secretly steal your email address for targeted advertising across different browsers and devices.
The major concern is that the same loophole could allow malicious actors to steal your saved usernames and passwords from browsers without requiring your interaction.
Every modern browser—Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera or Microsoft Edge—today comes with a built-in easy-to-use password manager tool that allows you to save your login information for automatic form-filling.

Web Trackers Exploit Flaw in Browser Login Managers to Steal Usernames
Princeton privacy experts are warning that advertising and analytics firms can secretly extract site usernames from browsers using hidden login fields and tie non-authenticated users visiting a site with their profiles or emails on that domain.
This type of abusive behavior is possible because of a design flaw in the login managers included with all browsers, login managers that allow browsers to remember a user's username and password for specific sites and auto-insert it in login fields when the user visits that site again.
Experts say that web trackers can embed hidden login forms on sites where the tracking scripts are loaded. Because of the way the login managers work, the browser will fill these fields with the user's login information, such as username and passwords.

Mac and iOS Keychain Tutorial: How Apple’s iCloud Keychain Works | The Mac Security Blog
Your need passwords to log into websites and services, and it's hard to remember them. Since it's a bad idea to use the same password for each different website — because if one site is compromised, hackers will have an email address and password that they can try on other sites — you need to ensure that your passwords are different, and hard to crack. (A recent episode of the Intego Mac Podcast talks about password strategies.)
Your Macs and iOS devices have a "keychain," which is an encrypted file that stores your passwords and some other information. This file syncs via iCloud, so you can use the same passwords on all your devices. Here's how Apple's iCloud keychain works.

Your web browser's password manager is helping ad companies track you across the web | iMore
The Same Origin Policy has one fatal flaw, and of course, ad companies have found a way to exploit it.
There are a few things you'll hear in every conversation about internet security; one of the first ones would be to use a password manager. I've said it, most of my coworkers have said it, and chances are you've said it while helping someone else sort out ways to keep their data safe and sound. It's still good advice, but a recent study from Princeton University's Center for Information Technology Policy has found that the password manager in your web browser you might use to keep your information private is also helping ad companies track you across the web.
It's a frightening scenario from all sides, mostly because it's not going to be easy to fix. What's happening isn't the stealing of any credentials — an ad company doesn't want your username and password — but the behavior a password manager uses is being exploited in a very simple way. An ad company places a script on a page (two called out by name are AdThink and OnAudience) that acts as a login form. It's not a real login form, as in it's not going to connect you to any service, it's "just" a login script.

Objective-See: From the Top to the Bottom
› tracking down the cause of CVE-2017-7149, from the UI level
In this blog, we'll take a detailed look a nasty bug (CVE-2017-7149) at affected High Sierra (macOS 10.13). Discovered by Matheus Mariano, this vulnerability could afford local attackers access to the contents of encrypted APFS volumes!
While Apple has patched this bug, and diff'ing the patch revealed the exact nature of the flaw (see Daniel Martín's tweet and great writeup), here, we'll take a different route to (re)illustrate the underlying issue.
Though our findings will mirror Daniel's, this blog post will instead start at the user interface (UI) level of the vulnerable app, then dig down, reversing various components and frameworks until we finally uncover the bug.
This method doesn't require a patch to diff and is a good practical reversing walk-thru!
A few weeks ago Matheus Mariano tweeted: "If you create an Encrypted APFS container and install the new macOS, your password will be stored as plain text in your password hint."

Stop us if you've heard this one: Apple's password protection in macOS can be thwarted • The Register
Developers (again) find preferences hole (again) that bypasses login box (again)
It just works. For anyone.
An Apple developer has uncovered another embarrassing vulnerability in macOS High Sierra, aka version 10.13, that lets someone bypass part of the operating system's password protections.
This time, a vulnerable dialog box was found in the System Preferences panel for the App Store settings. The bug, reported by developer Eric Holtam to the Open Radar bug tracker, has since been verified by Mac-toting netizens.

Another macOS password prompt can be bypassed with any password | TechCrunch
MacRumors spotted a bug report that affects the current version of macOS High Sierra. In System Preferences, you can unlock the App Store preference pane by typing any password. Apple has reportedly already fixed the bug in beta versions of the next macOS High Sierra update.
While this bug is nowhere as serious as the infamous root login bug, as John Gruber wrote, this one is quite embarrassing. What’s wrong with password prompts and macOS?
If you want to test this bug at home, I was able to reproduce it quite easily. Open System Preferences, go to the App Store settings and look at the padlock icon. If it’s unlocked, lock it first and then try unlocking it with any password. Ta-da!

Mac App Store preferences bug already patched in beta, still dumb | iMore
Administrator accounts on release versions of macOS 10.13 High Sierra can unlock App Store settings without the correct password. It's probably not a high-level threat but it's a really dumb bug. And it's the latest in a series.
There's a bug in macOS High Sierra that, if an administrator account is logged in, allows anyone to access Mac App Store settings even if they don't enter the correct password.
Joe Rossignol, reporting for MacRumors:
A bug report submitted on Open Radar this week has revealed a security flaw in the current version of macOS High Sierra that allows the App Store menu in System Preferences to be unlocked with any password.
It works on the current release version of macOS High Sierra, 10.13.2, but has already been fixed in the current beta version of macOS High Sierra, 10.13.3. (And it doesn't work in macOS Sierra 10.12.6 or earlier.)
