For Internet Banking (i.e. logging on the a bank's website and filling out forms to transfer money),

Q: Would someone adept at computer forensics be able to take my system and uncover my transactions history?

If so, what are preventative steps I could take?

If not, what is the most they could recover?

Thanks in advance. :D

Thanks for the reply!

To narrow the question,

Could a stranger uncover specific transactions I've made on a bank's website:

1. by approaching my ISP (with a warrant perhaps) and get a detailed list of my past transactions?

2. off my encrypted/unencryptedhard drive? (taking into account that banks use 128-bit SSL encryption technology)

The transaction is (should be) encrypted. What would you expect could be found at the ISP? If (and it would be a big if) your ISP keeps a log it may show the sites you visited.

Does your browser store/cache secure sessions?
