Hey buzz town!
I ran accross this article first on PCmag then again on Lifehacker.
So, I quicky went to check to see if my favorite podcast, BOL, has gotten the chance to report the good news!
Zscaler, a provider of a cloud based security service for webtraffic has just release a Firefox tool called Blacksheep. It’s used to help combat the easy to use hacker tool Firesheep. The software works by basicly bating firesheep with a fake ip session cookie and waits to see if that cookie gets hijacked. Once it does, Blacksheep alerts the user that someone on your wifi network is using Firesheep. As far as I know, Blacksheep doesn’t go farther than alerting the user and I wish it did more but it’s a much needed help until open wifi protocols becomes more secure.
The Mo-Wood, B-Tong shows have always make me smile the most; look forward to many laughs. Love the Show,
