How did you surf into their site? Could they be getting that info from the
browser perhaps?

My browser is mozilla 0.94

OK, I assume you're running either windows or samba, since otherwise
"workgroup" means nothing. And if ports 137, 138 and 139 are blocked in the
firewall, the browser is the only thing that could possibly give them that
information. I strongly doubt it gives any samba related info on a linux box,
but I don't know what it does on windows.
