Protecting users from Firesheep and other Sidejacking attacks with SSL

Or are you just pleased to see me? Hats off to Reading-based monitor vendor MAG InnoVision, the recipient of a one-off Register award for sending out fat-boy emails. The Bugger the Bandwidth Award goes to the company after it sent out a press release today with more attachments than the Royal Engineering Corp. It had two jpegs, a gif, a tif and four Word documents. It was so big that we at Vulture Central have decided not to read any of it but to use it to go mugging people instead. After taking more than 20 minutes to download the over weight specimen, during which time no other emails could be sent or received, guess what - it turned up a second time. Good work fellas - a copy of How to Win Friends and Influence People is not winging it's way to you right now. If your monitors are anything like as user friendly as your emails, we suggest you all get jobs at Burger King. ®
