Re: [Y-Mail] Re: New threat: Preventing from signing out
You might be able to circumvent a keylogger by cutting and pasting. Basically, write out the alphabet and then cut and paste the numbers and letters into a form.
If you cannot log off, as mentioned, killing cookies will serve the same purpose.
Good luck to you.

Subject: [Y-Mail] Re: New threat: Preventing from signing outThere is no way to do it remotely. . .I could go into details but will refrain from doing so here. In general though that should not be a problem (see below).
However, the one thing you can do, is that when you sign in. . . if you are on a public type computer like the one you are describing, make sure that you DO NOT check "Remember Me".
If you do that, then once the window is closed, that computer / browser combination will not be able to automatically sign in and read your mail (generally speaking, there could be ways around this. . .but that is not the norm).
Also, consider using the "Private Browsing" features of Mozilla / IE.
And lastly, if you have access to the options of your browser, you can either remove all cookies, or at the very least block all 3rd party cookies.
