Lazy Hackers Unite: Firesheep Boasts +104,000 Downloads In 24 Hours

3 posts in this topic

Well, that was fast.

In roughly 24 hours, Firesheep has been downloaded more than 104,000 times, as would-be-hackers — or the merely curious— downloaded the Firefox extension to test the exploit.

As we reported on Sunday night, Eric Butler’sFiresheep allows users on a public Wi-Fi network to effectively spy on others, by giving Firesheep users access to sensitive information (via cookies) that lets them log into their victim’s accounts on unsecured sites. The Firesheep extension is wired to identify a few dozen popular sites that are vulnerable to attack on public networks, such as Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Tumblr and Yelp.
