(slightly offtopic, sorry)

I just had an idea. It would be nice if moneybookers, paypal, banks and similar sites would allow you to define a 'fake password'. and if anyone tries to login with it, you get a notification by SMS.
you keep that fake pass saved in browser. so if you get the notification, you know the computer has been 'pwned'.
what do you think?

Not bad as an idea but there are many other ways how to get a password without compromising a computer (mainly through phishing techniques!) and what if the attacker gets the real password?
