I find it interesting that KeePass wasn’t mentioned. I guess I’m kind of relieved, since KeePass may have passed their tests, but also kind of worried, since it’s equally possible these researchers didn’t bother to test KeePass.

Those are ports not the actual Keepass that is for Windows. So one should separate what is the actual Keepass from the ported version. Those come off as “Contributed/Unofficial KeePass Ports”.

That is a good point.
