Another way of breaking security. I thought I would throw it in for any comments. Obviously it is not operator system dependent, nor hardware dependent. Somewhat disturbing, but you would still have to infiltrate a spy program onto the system in the first place to copy the cache and then successfully retrieve or transmit the information.
