Default myspace messages wanting you to talk through aim, what can they do?

Ok so I get like 20 messages a day from those spammer people asking to talk to you on yahoo or aim, but they all say there aim freezes up sometimes. When you add them there is a picture of a lock next to there name, I said hi once and saw that and quickly disconnected. My curious mind is wondering, what does that lock mean? Can they access your computer through aim? If so this is kind of scary.

The lock in AIM means it's an encrypted connection.

Look at this site:
