Secure Gmail Notifier using hidden preference setting
Authored by: thomasbosboom on Jul 13, '07 05:06:51AM

This is my submission, apparently my name didn't come through. Too bad ;-)
Anyway, the lessen is it can be reveiling to run Wireshark on your mac for a while and then search for your passwords in the capture. This should reveil any insecure communication.
It turned out I also misconfigured iCal so that it was sending my server pass in the clear everytime I updated my calendar... oops!

Thomas, how do you secure iCal so it doesn't send your info in cleartext?
