Hi All, it's just occurred to me that whereas https sites might themselves be secure, what about all the nodes and servers between them and the user, through which passwords and other data is unencrypted? or am I being too cautious or uninformed.

You've got that a bit wrong. Data between your computer and a secure website is encrypted at both ends. The data stays encrypted for the entire journey, so no one could make any sense of it even if it were to be captured mid-journey.
That depends if your HTTPS website is using an SSL or TLS certificate. TLS is a more up-to-date version of SSL without vulnerabilities. If you are looking to fully secure your website, I suggest having a look at TrafficDefender - click here
