Today I was trying to login into stackechange that I ecounter the following problem. My questions is, was someone trying to steal my session id? Do I have to worry about password of my email that was open in another tab? and the email and password that I used to login to my stackechange account.

NoScript is claiming that it blocked the attempt.

if there is nothing to worry about, why would NoScript block such attempt??

Here is the screen shot of the problem:

This is what we call in security: False-positive., which is defined usually as a type of error that leads a protection application to conclude that a supposed attack or infection exists when in fact it doesn't.

    Your answer would be more helpful when you would explain what might have triggered the detection and how to tell a false-positive apart from an actual attack.
