Q: I was chatting thru AOL and a buddy from my buddylist told me my buddylist was showing up on his (he read me the buddy names) how is this possible?

    I would suspect this friend of yours probably sent you an email with an attachment previous to this… be it a few days or a week before. Normally friends send you small little video games like Whac-A-Mole that is actually a trojan horse that includes a program that lets your friend play tricks on you. These tricks include seeing everything you do and possibly even typing for you.

    I would suspect that your friend probably did something like this to you and that it is not related to your AIM program itself.
