Extinguishing Firesheep for safe WiFi browsing


Firesheep has already taught 750,000 people how to hijack your unencrypted WiFi sessions with a single click.

So here’s how to extinguish Firesheep with a technological defence that you can put together in just 60 seconds, even when you’re on the road, and even if you’re connecting over unencrypted WiFi to start with.

Once you’re done, you can browse over unencrypted WiFi access points with no more risk than you’d browse at home.

This is a solution worthy of 1980s American pacifist technohero Angus MacGyver himself. (But no need for a mullet. Honestly.)
