One of the biggest issues as the wireless globe grows is that of safety of data especially individual data. Numerous individuals do what they contact war-driving to discover an open WiFi network to get their emails while traveling, even though this is a typical practice, it is against the law. There are hacker groups and IT security conferences that people go to, where the retailer type IT people also show up and discuss these problems. The ramifications of company data falling in the hands of a competitor or snooping opportunist hacker are very great. Many of us take several Wireless On-line Newsletters and study the white papers on the security issues as well. Indeed this is a problematic problem for companies.
I appear to recall sitting in a Wal-Mart parking lot with a Starbucks next door in a strip center in my motor home and obtaining the Grocery Shop Across the street, the gas station and a Mail Boxes Etc. Indeed I got a couple of others as well, which appear to be encoded, but most were completely open, which means I could start surfing anytime I had felt like it. Having T-Mobile Service I logged on legally to the system as usual, but I could have easily took up totally free bandwidth elsewhere that day.
I believe that many people buy these OTC peripherals and Linksys kind systems and then simply put them in and turn them on. I understand that one large House Improvement Sore did this and has fixed their units, but they had been wide open. Numerous little businesses all around are open, but most likely do not care. Some purposely blast WiFi to increase consumer base and do so on various separate air-gapped systems from their store operations, if you take Bitpipe on-line you can get the newest white papers on these things. You ought to sign up for on-line security white papers.
The FCW.com White Paper Library is powered by Bitpipe, Inc., the top syndicator of in-depth Information Technologies Literature. There was recently a case in Florida exactly where somebody was "War Driving" to pick up WiFi signals and stopped in front of someone's house turns out he inadvertently loaded some programs and the icons ended up on the host computer as nicely. The police came and arrested him. In Silicon Valley this went on quite a bit, two-guys who type of invented the idea went from business to business and did just that and then went into the business to pitch their services. Although this was good and a win/win, today the FBI High-Tech Crimes Division is all more than it.
In fact 1 recent GAO report and several articles in Federal Pc Weekly, GovExec.com and other oversight newsletters are quite worried as more than 1/3 of all government wireless networks are somewhat unsecured. I have discussed this and had a conversation with a hacker turned safety computer consultant. Apparently WEP or other such encryption is not even close to secure.
