Around half an hour later, I’d collected somewhere between 20 and 40 identities. Since Facebook was by far the most prevalent (and contains more personal information than Twitter) I decided to send the users messages from their own accounts to warn them of their accounts’ exposure. I drafted a friendly, generic message that stated the location of the Starbucks, what the vulnerability was, and how to avoid it. I sent messages to around 20 people.
It was only a matter of time when people will start using Firesheep to steal identities in Starbucks. Somebody decided to do it in order to warn people. And guess what: people don’t give a damn.
