Secret Service Wardrives DC

If you run a Wi-Fi network in Washington DC don’t be surprised if you get a friendly visit from the Secret Service to let you know that your network is insecure. The Secret Service has a complete wardriving set-up that they are using to find security holes that might impact the people they protect. This is yet another indication of Wi-Fi’s popularity. But more importantly it is another sign that vendors have to work harder to make it easy to secure networks even for novice users.
