Microsoft responds to Firesheep cookie-jacking tool – The H Security: News and Features

Microsoft responds to Firesheep cookie-jacking tool – The H Security: News and Features.

It’s hard to believe that Firesheep is only two weeks old. In response to Firesheep,  Microsoft said it will convert its Hotmail / Windows Live email service to SSL. Google did this for Gmail some time ago, well before Firesheep.

Facebook says it will also address the issue in the coming months.

So there is no doubt that more and more web traffic will be SSL encrypted and hidden from corporate control. I wrote about this last week, Easy fix for Firesheep creates a problem for enterprises.
