Cookie security (1 post)

    Hello, WordPress users!
    I am a newbie to WordPress, and I have the following question: is there any kind of cookie stealing protection in WordPress itself, or in any of the plugins? The situation is at follows: what if an attacker simply sniffs out my admin cookies i.e. in public unsecured Wi-Fi network, can he then use them to get admin access to my site? Unfortunately my site doesn't have HTTPS. Is WordPress protected itself from such a simple cookie stealing/hijacking attack, or I should use some plugin or hack to protect it?

    Sorry for my bad English.
