One of the greatest issues as the wireless world grows is that of security of data especially personal data. Many individuals do what they call war-driving to find an open WiFi network to get their emails whilst traveling, although this is a common practice, it is against the law. There are hacker groups and IT safety conferences that individuals go to, where the retailer type IT individuals also show up and talk about these problems. The ramifications of company information falling in the hands of a competitor or snooping opportunist hacker are very fantastic. Numerous of us take several Wireless Online Newsletters and study the white papers on the safety problems as nicely. Indeed this is a problematic issue for companies.
I seem to recall sitting in a Wal-Mart parking lot with a Starbucks next door in a strip center in my motor home and getting the Grocery Shop Across the street, the gas station and a Mail Boxes And so on. Indeed I got a couple of others too, which seem to be encoded, but most had been completely open, which means I could begin surfing anytime I had felt like it. Having T-Mobile Service I logged on legally to the method as usual, but I could have effortlessly took up free bandwidth elsewhere that day.
I think that numerous people buy these OTC peripherals and Linksys kind systems and then merely place them in and turn them on. I comprehend that one big House Improvement Sore did this and has fixed their units, but they had been wide open. Numerous little companies all about are open, but probably do not care. Some purposely blast WiFi to increase customer base and do so on different 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 should sign up for online security white papers.
The FCW.com White Paper Library is powered by Bitpipe, Inc., the leading syndicator of in-depth Information Technology Literature. There was recently a case in Florida where someone was "War Driving" to choose 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 pc as nicely. The police came and arrested him. In Silicon Valley this went on fairly a bit, two-guys who type of invented the idea went from business to business and did just that and then went into the company to pitch their services. Even though this was great and a win/win, these days the FBI High-Tech Crimes Division is all more than it.
In reality one current GAO report and a number of articles in Federal Pc Weekly, GovExec.com and other oversight newsletters are fairly 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 security computer consultant. Apparently WEP or other such encryption is not even close to safe.
