Freeware Pick: BlackSheep

The news has been full of doom and gloom over the Firesheep plugin that allows people to snoop on computers in public hotspots.

Free Wi-Fi hotspots are convenient, but come with increased security risks as well. Another Firefox plug-in called BlackSheep was developed as a Firesheep alarm. It won’t secure your wireless data, and it won’t prevent your information from being snooped by Firesheep, but it will alert you when Firesheep is in use on the network you’re connected to so that you’re aware.
