Just a few days ago I had my first encounter with Firesheep. Luckily I was the one using it. Well, it scared me into looking for ways to secure myself. So I have two questions:
- In exactly what situations do you have to worry about a Firesheep attack? Only open wireless? What about a wireless network with an encryption key known to strangers?
- What are the possible ways to protect yourself from Firesheep and other sniffing attacks? Especially options that would be free or maybe very low cost.
