Kudos to Eric Butler, creator of Firesheep.
- If you’re at a coffee shop on an unlocked network, and
- You login to an unsecured site (ie they don’t have SSL), and
- I have Firefox with the Firesheep installed
- I can login to said site AS YOU
If you do find yourself in such a situation, your best bet is to NEVER login to a site that doesn’t start with https.
