    Aweber is to do with the newsletter signup forms. By loading BHW, you load their forms from wherever they are. It's nothing to worry about.

    Aweber are a genuine email maketing company.

    That's just lastpass being sloppy.

    You can't POST to a html forum and have your login creds leaked in that manner.

    If in doubt analyze the http headers. You'll see nothing important is passed to aweber.
