How to Break Into a Mac (and Prevent It from Happening to You)

How to Break Into a Mac (and Prevent It from Happening to You)
Hello Necromancer. Who said anything about not backing up? Backups are great, and they're so easily accessible now that, yes, everyone should back up their hard-drives. I back up my hard-drives. But the problem is two-fold. First and foremost, if you use time-machine like me, then encrypting your hard-drive makes Time Machine almost useless. But the other problem is time. As I said, if I had extremely sensitive data on my hard-drive, and traveled frequently, then an encryption would make sense.

Firesheep The extension was created as a demonstration of the security risk of session hijacking vulnerabilities to users of web sites that only encrypt the login process and not the cookie(s) created during the login process.[3] It has been warned that the use of the extension to capture login details without permission would violate wiretapping laws and/or computer security laws in some countries. Despite the security threat surrounding Firesheep, representatives for Mozilla Add-ons have stated that it would not use the browser's internal add-on blacklist to disable use of Firesheep, as the blacklist has only been used to disable spyware or add-ons which inadvertently create security vulnerabilities, as opposed to attack tools (which may legitimately be used to test the security of one's own systems).[4] Note that even if they did, it wouldn't actually prevent anyone from using Firesheep, as Firefox contains a hidden setting to disable this blacklist.[5] Countermeasures[edit] HTTPS[edit]
