Find Email Passwords Using Ettercap

I was surfing the internet today and came upon a video from on how to find a password for someone's online email account using Ettercap, which is a linux utility that, according to the Ettercap website, "is a multipurpose sniffer/interceptor/logger for switched LAN. It supports active and passive dissection of many protocols (even ciphered ones)"

Ettercap comes pre-installed on the Backtrack live CD which is what the guy in the video uses.

One thing I find particularly interesting is that the guy finds the password for a Gmail account where the login page is encrypted using SSL. Check it out!
