It is possible that if you visited a site that had such unbelievably lax security protocol that they stored your password in your cookies, this could happen.

However any legitimate site you visit would not do this and if they did, it would more than likely be encrypted. I'd say it is much more likely that you get struck by lighting today, twice.
