The Mozilla Foundation has a podcast called IRL. In a recent episode they talked about passwords and basically ended the episode advocating the use of proprietary password managers, specifically LastPass and OnePass.

LastPass has had number of security breaches over the years. Mozilla is a non-profit that creates Free Software, and even has a password manager built into Firefox that is FLOSS, and even self-hostable. Why are they advocating people use inferior stuff to their own?

@emacsen All the folks who could fix it quit about three years ago. As far as anyone is concerned, it's unmaintained code.


@drwho Firefox Sync Server is unmaintained? That's disturbing to hear.

@emacsen I don't know about Syncserver, but Password Manager for sure. They all signed on at the last place I worked just before I quit.
