Can my logmein.com usage be detected at work?

My employer uses Websense to limit what sites we can visit. I recently discovered that logmein.com is not blocked. My question is: can they scan packets and figure out that I am using it to log in to my computer at home? Does logmein.com use any kind of signature protocol/port that would raise red flags, or is it pretty much just a standard webpage?

I am planning to use the Firefox extension to access it, but it also can be run via any web browser in Java.
Secondly, would you consider using this site to be "dangerous" to their network? To my knowledge, our internet usage policy does not forbid using it, but, in theory, if my computer had a virus, could it spread to their network?
