DroidSheep demonstrates how easy an attack like this can be – Just start DroidSheep, click the START button and wait until someone uses one of the supported websites. Although DroidSheep is not made for doing such attacks, anyone can test and assure that it really works. DroidSheep is NOT INTENDED TO STEAL IDENTITIES.
