Firesheep - Firefox Pluggin to Hijack Facebook Twiiter Cookies

Recommended Posts

Guest EFF

HTTPS Everywhere is a Firefox extension produced as a collaboration between The Tor Project and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. It encrypts your communications with a number of major websites.

 

Many sites on the web offer some limited support for encryption over HTTPS, but make it difficult to use. For instance, they may default to unencrypted HTTP, or fill encrypted pages with links that go back to the unencrypted site.

Idiocy is a warning shot to people browsing the internet insecurely.

 

For more information: http://jonty.co.uk/idiocy

 

Idiocy quietly watches for people insecurely visiting twitter on public wifi networks, then hijacks their session to post a tweet warning them about the dangers. It was written in response to the release of Firesheep, which will result in a huge increase in session stealing attacks, with no defence other than forcing people to use SSL.

I would advise people not to send sensitive information from a public network.
