Autofill your credit card with browser toolbar

I have to wonder if John Mitchell and Dan Boneh’s password hash mechanism (and its potential offshoots) will be able to protect against nasty plugins such as this.

Safersurf announced that the EliteBar (another in a long line of spyware-based browser toolbars) not only tracks your surfing habits, but can also send your credit card information to faraway places. The “autofill” option in the toolbar seems to be the major culprit, although I say having some third party browser toolbar installed on your system makes lack of common sense the major culprit.
