[quote=ndebord] Firesheep is a scary extension for FireFox, imo, and one that makes open and free WiFi cafes even scarier to use. http://www.zdnet.com/blog/perlow/firesheep-its-gonna-cost-you/14327?tag=content;selector-blogs The following FireFox extensions are supposed to make that browser safe by forcing SSL and HTTPS. Will they work with K-Meleon? Force the use of TLS or SSL Many, but not all sites, support the use of Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) or TLS/SSL over HTTP (HTTPS) but default to not encrypting your traffic. There are browser extensions, however, that will force those sites that support TLS or SSL to use these protocols. Once authenticated and encrypted, your traffic will be safe from Firesheep. These extensions include HTTPS Everywhere and Force TLS. Other broader Web security extensions, such as NoScript, also include this functionality. That’s the good news. The bad news is that they only work with Firefox. There are, to the best of my knowledge, no such add-ons for Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, or Opera. If anyone knows of some, I’d love to hear about them.[/quote]
