Criminals And WiFi

Glenn Fleishman reports that there are finally some real reports coming out concerning criminals who use WiFi, but it might not be that simple. Seth Godin is complaining about how everyone is closing up their networks these days, making it difficult to jump on networks when necessary and notes that the criminal threat is overblown. The “crime” isn’t that people are jumping on your network to do you damage, most of the time, but that they’re jumping on your network to cover their tracks somewhat — and they’re always going to find some place where they can do that.
