If you thought public WiFi is safe...

Not anymore.

Now someone has developed an application called FireSheep that plugs into your standard FireFox browser.  This application allows anyone to "sniff" any unsecured WiFi connection and displays who others on the network are looking at.  If you see a website that's interested, all you need to do is click on that page and you're all of the sudden logged in as that user into their Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter.
