report card" for the various Web 2.0 services like webmail providers and Facebook.
Of the major webmail providers in the U.S., only Gmail is secure against sidejacking attacks. Yahoo Mail and HotMail are insecure, and can be compromised quickly. There are still a lot of HotMail users out there -- they are fools.
I talked to the people at Microsoft responsible for fixing this problem ALMOST THREE YEARS AGO. Yet, they've done nothing about fixing this huge hole. I just tried it out today -- while FireSheep looks a bit funky (it doesn't correctly show the user name), it easily hacks into HotMail accounts.
