Surfers Beware – Firesheep spells Danger!
Today I have a heads up for any of you who use the internet at public places which most often only offer unsecure networks!
I went to Maccas this morning for testing purposes (although my bacon McMuffin and Macacino were welcome testing additions….lol)
I wanted to pass along a tip to any of you that connect to un-secure WiFi networks (almost everyone does) and this is for real – just tested by me and my Maccas (my diet starts tomorrow!)
So, some guy wrote a Firefox plugin called FireSheep which basically allows anyone to hack into your computer if you are connected to an un-secure WiFi network. He wrote the plugin to draw attention to the fact that it’s super easy to steal your “cookies” when connected to WiFi. With these cookies a person can pretty much login to any website you access and steal your private info.
So what’s happened is regular people are now using this FireSheep at airports, coffee shops, anywhere there are un-secure networks and stealing your data. The problem has always been there but was limited to super computer geeks. Now anyone can hack into your stuff with a simple Firefox plugin.
And I just proved it – I just logged in to the girls facebook account thats sitting at the next table! It was so ridiculously easy that I had to go and interupt her and her friends and show them what I had done.
I knew her name because I could see it and her pic so I walked straight up and said – ‘Hey Jess’ she said – “who are you” I said “the person who is going to show you how vulnerable the info in your facebook account is” and we went from there.
Rather than try and write up a big article about this because although I know this firesheep is going to be a big issue – I would have to do extensive research to bring you the low down at Showdown (lol) I have found you another article to show you this major security issue.
Its a bit techie but hey! after yesterdays post, Im sure you can handle it! Here is a great article about the problem and what you can do to prevent it – just scroll past the ads to get your geek on and protect yourself!
I hope that helps you out

Monday Traffic Showdown Chuckle Winner
Todays chuckle winner is member #2156 – Well done Chris! You win 1000 credits for this one……
Arthur is 90 years old. He’s played golf every day since his retirement 30 years ago.
One day he arrives home looking downcast.
‘That’s it,’ he tells his wife, ‘I’m giving up golf. My eyesight is so bad … Once I hit the ball, I can’t see where it went.’
His wife sympathizes, and as they sit down, she says, ‘Why don’t you take my brother with you, and give it one more try.’
‘That’s no good,’ sighs Arthur… ‘Your brother is ninety five. He can’t help.’
‘He may be ninety five’, says the wife, ‘but his eyesight is perfect.’
So the next day, Arthur heads off to the golf course with his brother-in-law.. He tees up, takes a mighty swing, and squints down the fairway. He turns to the brother-in-law.
‘Did you see the ball?’
‘Of course I did!’ says the brother-in- law. ‘I have perfect eyesight.’
‘Where did it go?’ asks Arthur.
‘I can’t remember.’
Thats all today Stage Setters!
Have a great day – we will see you tomorrow
