Last month we highlighted Firesheep , a new extension designed to sniff out weak and hijack web site credentials on open networks. BlackSheep is an anti-Firesheep tool, designed to alert you whenever Firesheep is active on your local network. Zscaler, a company specializing in security measures for cloud-based computing services, created Blacksheep to counteract Firesheep session hijacking. Once installed Blacksheep broadcasts fake credentials to essentially fish for Firesheep installations on the network. When one is detected it displays the alert seen in the screen capture above.
