Firesheep for the Palm webOS [Video + Source Code]

Firesheep comes to webOS. Now, all the Wi-Fi tomfoolery that made you shudder as a Firefox extension can run on your Palm Pre. “A few weeks ago the plugin firesheep has been released for Firefox. With the plugin you can take over websessions from other users and login into their account. I ported the plugin to Palm webOS and I use my Palm Pre to take over a gowalla.com session.

The script automatically detects the session and starts the browser with the user logged in on the device. The script itself is written in javascript using node.js and the backend is taken from the original firesheep plugin.”

The video shows the takeover of a gowalla session but theoretically it works with all the sites which work with firesheep.
