Eh... This is not news, I've seen many password recovery software recover passwords before this. This does not scare me at all unless a hacker broke into my system and broke all my passwords with this.
Then again, he would have to pay for it in order for it to be usable.

Once someone has physical access to your computer, there is no such thing as security. I'm not a hacker, but give me physical access to your machine and I will have all your data no matter what security you use. This little program requires physical access to the computer while puts it in the same catagory as literally hundreds of others. Even an invisible hidden OS is not protection.
I've used Bart PE to recover system login information for numerous people before, done forced bios resets to get around bios passwords, along with several other cracks. It is a fact of life that most people are not good at coming up with a password and not good at remembering it.

I agree with InfinityzeN1 for the most part: "Protection" on 99+% of the systems I've seen (including Win7) can be circumvented by inserting a Linux LiveCD and running the 'chntpw' command to reset the Windows Admin password to whatever you want.
If you want security, don't use the one browser that gets pwnd the most, and use full disk encryption or ecryptfs.

Don't you have to be able to break into people's houses to get to their systems, run the CD and execute the command?
Or are there other ways that they can get our hands on our systems...

Of course it comes from Russia!
Those people have nothing better to do than exploit their hottest women in porn, run drug and weapon trades, and generate cyberwar built on proven tech from other countries modified for nefarious purposes.
That is the end role of socialism after everyone has been robbed of rights and their existence. They must always go back to attacking capitalism by the only way that lets them survive, by using the capitalist system!
All I can say is always make sure that your remote capabilities is turned off!
Lets see most people simply save all their passwords in their browser. and a simple too like konboot to boot their machine and login without having to change the password. its great for pranks too.
ElcomSoft's SQL password recovery tool also works very well should anyone need to crack a lost SA password...more likely than needing this for a good reason, most sites have a "Forgot Password" option.
