Say I host a couchdb instance on my account, can people on the same shared host sniff the HTTP traffic between, say, me logged in through ssh + curl? I'm worried about the password being read in plaintext by fellow users. I'm pretty sure I don't have to worry about this, but I still do :P

Thanks

Hi,

No, this is not possible as the traffic does not actually travel through the network.
