Re: Hacking for dummies

Wow, thanks for posting that. Scary stuff. I hadn't been too concerned about using wi-fi at cafes until now.

Re: Hacking for dummies

Using a VPN or HTTPS Everywhere are a couple options when on a public network.

Re: Hacking for dummies

I bet FB and Tw will be using https in no time.

Using https isn't just buying a certificate. You'll have 10x more load on your servers, due to the encryption going on on each request.

Its really very simple. If you are using public wifi, everything you send to your ISP over the airwaves is plain text and can be read by anyone sniffing around. That is a big risk in itself. And if you are logging onto unencrypted websites, email access points, you are simply asking for all your details to taken and abused.

Next time you get "free Internet" at Starbucks or wherever, understand what "free" really means. Stick to wired access if at all possible.

Re: Hacking for dummies

It comes with a "handler" for eNom and there's one in the works for Godaddy too.

Watch out for a rash of domain hijacks.
