CAE guy writes “The Boston Globe is carrying an AP report which begins: ‘A Georgia mother and her two daughters logged onto Facebook from mobile phones last weekend and wound up in a startling place: strangers’ accounts with full access to troves of private information. The glitch — the result of a routing problem at the family’s wireless carrier, AT&T — revealed a little known security flaw with far reaching implications for everyone on the Internet, not just Facebook users.’ Who needs to worry about man-in-the-middle attacks when your service provider will hijack your session for you?”
