Zscaler researchers have created, and are now offering to every consumer, a free Firefox plugin called BlackSheep, which serves as a counter-measure. BlackSheep combats Firesheep by monitoring traffic and then alerting users if Firesheep is being used on the network. BlackSheep does this by dropping 'fake' session ID information on the wire and then monitors traffic to see if it has been hijacked."

OMG I just heard about this game called "Counterstrike" where they let you play as TERRORISTS!!! And they take hostages and shoot at anti-terrorist forces! OMG OMG OMG!!!

Seriously, when did it become an issue to have people play as bad guys in video games? Why are we even talking about this?
