Would be fun to try and replicate this....

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. http://www.boston.com/business/technology/articles/2010/01/15/ap_exclusive_network_flaw_causes_scary_web_error/
