Nice article. One addition though, addons can't contain malware by virtue of how they operate. It's remotely possible they could use a buffer overflow technique to run actual code but that's never been done in the past to my knowledge. Just make sure you know how to install an addon manually if you're going to use them. Don't use executable addon updaters that you're not 100% sure of. Even then, make sure you're getting the updater from the proper site. Try not to download the Ace updater from www.goingtokeylogyou.com for example.To reiterate Amanda's above point. No matter how well you practice personal security, if you ever login on a foreign machine or give a friend/guildy your password at any time, you're risking throwing your account away.
