Wireless Drive-By

I’m really starting to get sick of articles about “war driving” that hype up how al these networks they find are “insecure”. There’s no evidence that that’s really the case. These networks are open – possibly on purpose. That doesn’t mean any confidential information is available. However, since it’s being done by a security company, and they want to scare as many people as possible, they get these articles written up that are completely misleading.
