As far as I can dechipher the marketbabble on the "how it works" pages,
it looks like the system is based on clients "calling home" via https,
and "home" then uses the connection just established to keep in touch.
I think it's https you need to worry about.  You could try limiting
allowed https contact to a list of known good hosts (do remember to
include your boss' online bank in the list).
