Bear in mind, however, that many site passwords are not there for your security - they are there to "protect" the content on the site against unauthorized viewing. So as long as you do not use the password manager (or postit notes) for truly sensitive passwords, why would you even care about this exploit?
I agree with you, for important passwords (my email login, finances, etc.) - I don't store those at all. But I have no qualms about storing my assorted subscription logins (like lwn.net) in the password manager.
