I don't understand how it would figure out to post the link on a forum that you are a member of...maybe by accessing your saved passwords or something?

i have a prog that retrieves your passwords for a lot of things and some give you the web address, so i spose what you said is possible. hackers are clever, therefore viruses can be clever, too clever for me too worry about

I clear all my private data every time I exit Firefox. Passwords, cookies, history, it all gets wiped.
