FIRESHEEP: Public WiFi Warning!

FireSheep: The Firefox plug-in Firesheep is an easy hacking tool that displays people’s login information on a pubic wireless network.

You simply click on the person’s account for Google, Facebook, Twitter, or Flickr and it automatically logs you in!


 FireShepherd: Thankfully, there’s now FireShepherd that can block “Firesheep” — protecting you from someone else reading your own information on a wireless network.
