    It's a TCP sequence number inference attack but appears to require some user interaction:

    I've never owned a cellphone, and don't plan on it, though I did get an offer from AT&T yesterday telling me I could get 2 Smartphones for free, as long as I signed up for a 2 year plan for each of them. :p

    Smartphone are there just for the convenience IMO, as long as you don't do anything sensitive there, it can be really handy at times. :D
