    Hi,So i was looking into how to make my site more secure (specifically PHP sessions) because at the moment i'm running user id and some other data through the session (avatar...etc) and from what i could figure out on the interwebs is that PHP sessions are not visible to users but the PHPSESSID is.My question is, how can a hacker hijack my PHP session, what is the process they need to go through to obtain that session data? i have tried to use wireshark to test my site and i couldn't see any session data but only cookies (something that's scary is seeing my password when POSTing to the log-in page, Thanks for your advice!
