Firesheep AttacksWe all know about using SSL for encrypting logins and ecommerce transactions. But that protection doesn't usually extend across other parts of the same websites.

With the release of the Firesheep extension for the Firefox web browser, its developer Eric Butler has raised awareness of the vulnerabilities of users' Wi-Fi sessions to hijacking, side-jacking, and MITM (man-in-the-middle) attacks.

To understand this issue and how to protect your websites and yourself, we have put together a page which addresses how to Protect Against Firesheep Attacks with Always-On SSL.

As you will see, there is nothing sheepish about our Firesheep page. What I like about this page is that it is visually informative and engaging. We tilted the pendulum on the image-to-text ratio on this page compared to most other pages on In this case, it's effective for better underscoring the content and issue in question making it clearer and easier to understand and consume.
