    Hi all,

    Is there any danger or security issues with doing online meetings?

    I was doing a few online meetings using "google talk" and "joinme."

    I noticed that my computer was sluggish after those meetings...and was wondering if somehow one of the meeting members dropped a keylogger into my computer?

    Any chance of this happening?

    ~thanks for your constructive input!

    The greatest risks from online meetings are snagging a hangnail on your mousepad, spilling a hot beverage onyourself, forgetting the cam is on and being embarrassed when caught masturbating, and spontaneous autoasphyxiation due to terminal boredom.

    As long as you use a secure service for the meetings your fine. Oh and don't leave your PC for the toilet or what ever if the other party has control over your PC.
