I noticed that you can use the command "security" in terminal to access keychain access. After some messing around I found this command: Code: security dump-keychain -d This will go through every item in the keychain and dump the information and the password in clear text. Now there is some security, a little pop up will come up asking you to accept, and NOT ask for a password. The only way I have found that i can stop this command from dumping my decoded password is using this command: Code: security lock-keychain This will make it so the command will require a password, but there are drawbacks, everytime a program like chrome or skype wants to use my information it prompts me for a password, and when i put it in it unlocks my keychain again! has anyone found this before/know a way to fix this problem?? btw I'm on 10.5.8, so maybe this isn't an issue in 10.6. I was thinking of taking away execute permissions on /usr/bin/security for everybody except root: Code: sudo chmod 500 /usr/bin/security ...But i don't know if this would cause any problems or programs to not work.
