I am trying to find a tomshardware or tomsnetworking article from a few years ago. It was written and produced by Humphrey Cheung, cracking a Gmail account using a USB pCAP and snaging it's cookie. Does anyone remember this or know where it is?
You're not talking about this article, are you? I realize that it isn't about exactly what you said above, but it is a very popular older article about cracking WEP....it is possible that this is what you were thinking of, and remembering.
