|Ask HN: Are password managers secure?|

|OK so I've come to like a certain password manager.|
I'm sure the data itself is secure in its raw encrypted form.
But, if I were an evil hacker, I'd be aiming to target the User Interface somehow. Since once I enter my password, the app is unlocked and my passwords are all there to find through the GUI. I'd aim to siphon out data through the OS and windowing system somehow, after the user has unlocked.
How much of a threat is this, do you think?
Also having a Chrome plugin just feels like an extra hackable interface?
