Zscaler Research: BlackSheep - A Tool to Detect Firesheep

Zscaler Research: BlackSheep - A Tool to Detect Firesheep | ICT Security Tools | Scoop.it


You've probably all heard of Firesheep by now, a Firefox add-on which lets anyone hijack a user's session to various popular web applications when they're using an open wireless network. While sniffing/stealing session credentials is nothing new, Firesheep exposes this capability to the masses by automating the process so that absolutely no technical know-how is required.


Unfortunately, it is actually quite difficult to defend against Firesheep because most sites only permit SSL connections during the initial login, not while surfing other pages. As such, while your username and password are encrypted, your session ID is available to all other machines on the same network.



In order to install BlackSheep, you need:

Mac OS X: 10.5 or newer on an Intel processor.Windows: XP or newer. Install Winpcap first!Linux:  available hereFirefox: 3.5 or newer. 32-bit only.
Gust MEES's insight:

 

A MUST install when using Public WiFi!!!

AirDefense Personal Lite

AirDefense Personal Lite | ICT Security Tools | Scoop.it

Whenever you use WiFi away from your home or office network, you're potentially open to attack. There are plenty of dangers out there, including scam networks masquerading as real public hot spots, and "evil twins," which are rogue duplicate networks set up at a public hot spot, and appear to be the real network, when in fact, they're run by someone who wants you to connect so that he can break into your PC and steal your personal information.


This freebie promises to help. It monitors the networks to which you connect, and if they're potentially dangerous, issues warnings and offers advice on how to keep yourself safe. It also warns you if you connect to an unencrypted wireless network, or if you've connected to a wireless network that can use encryption, but you haven't enabled it.

 

There's plenty more it warns against as well, such as potential phishing attacks, and even sudden changes in signal strength.
