‘HTTPS Now’ Campaign Urges Users to Take an Active Role in Protecting Internet Security

[news release] The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and Access have launched an international campaign for HTTPS Now, rallying consumers around the world to help us make web surfing safer.”We’ve heard a lot about how malicious tools like Firesheep can be used to steal data, including passwords for email and social networking accounts,” said EFF Activist Eva Galperin. “HTTPS Now is aimed at protecting users from attacks like these by spreading the word about HTTPS and how to use it correctly. HTTPS provides the minimum level of security for websites. Without it, no site can make any meaningful security or privacy guarantees to its users.”
