Default Java

I'm not sure if this is the right forum or not but I am wondering if Java saves passwords. I play a game online that is Java based and I am suspicious that my brother is trying to get my pass through some program or something. Do I have anything to worry about? What could he be doing that would get my password?

He won't get your password. The only way he would is if he is using a keylogger while you are playing, as he would get your password from whatever you are using, not just java.

Don't worry about it, he'd have to be pretty smart.

What game, I can see if it logs password's

I would think it would be fairly easy to recover, with password recording programs.

Well with a keylogger it's trivial. In this age of script kiddies anyone can do it. Doesn't have anything to do with Java really. Of course then u have other things to worry about. Like credit card #s and email passwords
