    Default [NEW PACKAGE]Firesheep

    Firesheep: A Firefox extension that demonstrates HTTP session hijacking attacks.

    NOTE: Firefox 3.6 is required

    apt-get install autoconf libhal-dev 
    tar -xjvf xulrunner-
    git clone
    git submodule update --init
    cd firesheep
    ./ --with-xulrunner-sdk="path to xulrunner sdk" && make
    Drag & drop firesheep.xpi from firesheep/build/ into your Addons dialog box, restart Firefox and you should be set.

    This is exactly why we tell people to only install packages that come from our repos. Adding things from outside sources (even building from source) can cause problems.
    Further the Tool request section is not for tutorials. This is not how packages are done anyhow.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
    If you are new to Back|Track
    Back|Track Wiki
    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.
