Projects / Gpasman


Gpasman is a password manager. People working with the internet have to remember lots of passwords. Saving them in a textfile is not a secure idea. Gpasman is a GTK solution to this problem since it saves the password information encrypted, so now you have to remember only one password instead of ten (or more).

            Re: Stay away from it
            i fixed it on the recent version 1.9.1b and there should be no longer a limitation for the password file.

            Stay away from it
            Stay away from this program. Using sloppy coding
            techniques (fixed array sizes) quickly leads to
            problems. When your file grows over a certain
            limit, the program won't come up, and you won't be
            able to see your precious data.

            If the author were actively maintaining the
            program it wouldn't be so much of a problem, but
            he isn't. So don't trust your data to gpasman.

            In case you are already locked out, get the source
            and make LOAD_BUFFER_LENGTH much larger (I tried
            multiplying by 100). Compile and run the new
            version (make sure you are running the version YOU
            compiled). Copy your data and RUN AWAY!

            Re: Data corruption

            I've encountered the same with gpasman as well as kpasman, heres the response from the author of kpasman which should explain why what you describe happens.

            The only bug I know of inherent in both is a limitation on the size of
            data entry; gpasman hardcoded 2048 as a buffer limit. Try grabbing the
            latest CVS source of kpasman, I added a fix to make it all dynamic -
            compile a new binary and see how that goes. (betcha it's the size of the
            22nd/23rd entry)

            Data corruption
            After using gpasman extensively for a long time, I recently upgraded
            to 1.3.0 and within a few days for reasons unknown all versions of gpasman now segfault on different machines (with different libraries) when reading the, apparently now corrupted, password file right after the master password is entered. No response from the author so far after 36 hours.

            I Installed gpasman 1.2 under HP-UX 10.20 with no problems. It worked for a few weeks,
            then after updating to 1.3 it started garbling everything "slightly", i.e. transposing every
            other character etc.
            I could not get it to work again and since then I simply store my passwords in a
            des-encrypted file.
