Protecting users from Firesheep and other Sidejacking attacks with SSL

Anyone eager to know which Usenet newsgroups and Web URLs are blacklisted by Mattel's Cyber Patrol censorware application, but too lazy to compile and run the cphack utility which decrypts the list, is welcome to visit the Cyber Patrol Block List Web site. The site exhaustively lists all of the 64,523 IPs named in the Cyber Patrol cyber.not file, except those for which a hostname could not be resolved, as of 16 March. The list is organised according to IP ranges. We were relieved to learn that The Register is not among the Cyber Patrol blacklisted URLs, but any of our readers who have Web sites might find it amusing to look up their own and discover whether or not they are regarded by Mattel as a threat to the proper development of children. ® Related Coverage ACLU appeals Mattel ruling Bizarre Language in Mattel Ruling Mattel sues hackers, wins injunction Mattel buys copyrights to Cyber Patrol crack
