This is why you should never use AutoComplete...

BBC has a story which reports a very serious ID theft scam that was uncovered very recently. Using a Trojan, all information from Internet Explorer's Web Form AutoComplete was extracted -- given the perpetrators access to usernames, passwords, credit cards, bank accounts, and potentially anything else that was accessed with IE using a form.

Don't ever use AutoComplete, and don't ever save any passwords locally on your machine!
