FON Login Sniffing Vulnerability?

This is a little concerning to see details of how to execute sniffing of FON username/passwords. I imagine that as a Bill it would be dangerous to lose this information because it would probably be possible to take your money from the shared revenue.

Other than that, while it's never good to lose a username/password I'm not sure if it's such a big deal.

The site recommends that you submit your captured file to them for decoding. The slight problem there is that now THIS site becomes a way to "sniff" usernames passwords: people test this using their own account, submit it to this site, and now this site has their logind details. Great idea.

Fun Sniffing What?

This is a little concerning to see details of how to execute the sniffing of the so-called "fun," and all of the analogies This site puts forth. I imagine that as a Bill it would be dangerous to lose this information because it would probably be possible to take your money and leave you with a little bag of sugar.

Other than that, while it's never good to lose a little money, I'm not sure if it's such a big deal, you can always make cookies.

While the site recommends that you submit your captured "fun" to them for analysis. The slight problem there is that now THIS site becomes a way to sell you more "fun": people test this using their own nose, submit it to this site, and now this site has their own inventory to rip more of you off!!! Great idea.

I'm not sure what kind of business you are running here, but...

And thank you,

...for keeping the "private and will be not shown publicly" anonymity of your postings...
