- Firesheep, a day later
On Hacker News, I saw this follow up post from Eric Butler, the author of Firesheep. It confirms my read on his motivations and shares the reaction so far. He also gives some good background material on the problem Firesheep is meant to highlight and confirms many of the suggested remediations. He debunks a few possible defenses, too, clearly explaining why they are not advised or less effective.
