    Fair play on their response. They are limited to what's possible. I never think as any of these things as 100% infallible. I think the benefits in security 1P brings with it's functionality outweighs the likelihood of a targeted malware attack. This is more about wider vulnerabilities in OSX than an error on Agile Bits behalf.

      Note that their 'response' was from 8 months before this article was published. I'm surprised this article is getting so much attention.

      In case this is news to anyone: if your machine is compromised, your data might be compromised too. This is not a failure of 1Password at all.

        …if your machine is compromised, your data might be compromised too.

        Certainly true if your machine is compromised and you keep using it. :D
