BlackSheep Aims to Herd Firesheep Hacking Tool
A free tool to remove the Firesheep hacking program will be released next week by the security firm Zscaler.
The tool is called BlackSheep, and it is designed to combat Firesheep , the now infamous Firefox Web Browser add-on that allows hackers to access highly-trafficked sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Amazon on computers surfing on unsecured Wi-Fi networks .
Since its release in late October, Firesheep has been downloaded more than 200,000 times.
BlackSheep will be available for free download on Monday, Nov. 8 at the Zscaler website.
