There's An App (Hack I Meant) For That - FaceNIFF


One app probably not hitting the Apple App Store anytime soon is the FaceNIFF Android application, which helps you hack into Facebook, Twitter, and other web services.

FaceNIFF is more insidious than the Mozilla Firefox sniffing extension Firesheep as it works on not only Wi-Fi, but (drum roll please) encrypted WPA-encrypted Wi-Fi as well. Here's a video of FaceNIFF in action.

As a precaution to more such malicious browser extensions and emerging apps, change your settings on Twitter and Facebook et al to HTTPS, which will offer a degree of protection against some of these new sniffers.
