Submission + - Google App Engine open to session jacking ->

mask.of.sanity writes: A still-active flaw has been discovered in Google Apps Engine that allows user sessions to be hijacked.

The researcher who discovered the flaw used the Cookie Cadger tool to hijack a session over an unprotected wireless network and was granted full admin access to the user's database.

The specific conditions under which the flaw exists were not revealed. It was a flaw only because Google forces its Apps Engine users onto encrypted HTTPS which prevents this type of interception.
