Hi Andre,

2010/4/6 Andre Pawlowski <sqall () h4des org>:
Hi guys,

I've written a program to store your passwords secure in a container on a

The whole project is written in php. A weak point of the program is the http
protocol. When the user doesn't use https to transfer the data the passwords
will send decrypted over the net.

I hope there is any use for this program and I'm glad if anyone of you send
me any critics or suggestions.

Your script does not properly check the input parameters, except that
strpos('./') check.
There are XSS Bugs which can lead to several vulns.
I didn't check it intensely, but I believe your failing strpos()-test
can lead to a directory traversal attack, which may lead to files
being overwritten without permission (for example destroying someone
else's password-safe or crushing systems config files).
