    So first the fun part...

    FaceNiff makes Facebook hacking a portable, one-tap affair (video) -- Engadget

    Yep, you can now get your twitter, youtube, amazon, and facebook accounts hacked from an android app using a pretty simple method.

    So let we talk about what is needed to stop this from happening. The best way I can think of, at 12:00 am, is to force those websites to use https for all your connections.

    For the add on check link below for the firefox add-on. Will check to make sure it works with android.

    When you are on an unprotected network, when using a trusted network, you can probably disable the add on, but it is best to be safe then sorry.

    If you have any other ideas on how to work around this problem, please post them.

    FaceNiff is a hacking tool for social networking sites. As such it's not a subject to be discussed on this forum...
