Submission + - DroidSheep App Lets Users Hijack HTTPS Sessions (threatpost.com)

Trailrunner7 writes: Following the success of the Firesheep application, a new Android application called DroidSheep allows users to hijack Web sessions of popular online services over insecure Wifi connections.

DroidSheep enables Android-based man in the middle attacks against a wide range of Web sites, including Facebook.com, Flickr.com, Twitter.com, Linkedin.com, and non-encrypted services like Google Maps. DroidSheep’s official website claims that the app will work on almost any website that uses cookies.
