As stated in the article, autofill is actually a net positive for browser security in general, as it helps discourage password reuse.

A better solution is to block as many 3rd party scripts as possible with an ad blocker.

i use ghostery and ublock, but i was still a victim of this (on the test site). i use 1password, so it's a pretty easy thing to tell it when to fill in a password for me.

Obviously, since the test site is not an advertising system, so it wouldn't be on any blacklists.
