Wardriving

So a couple weeks ago I actually did a little wardriving for about three miles, just to see how many wifi networks I’d find.  At a stop, I connected to one, loaded Slashdot to test, and what do I see? Oh My!, Man Arrested for Using Open Wireless Network.  Hmmm, whoops?

Great quote: “worrisome as it seems, wireless mooching is easily preventable by turning on encryption or requiring passwords.”

Yeah, kinda like putting doors on a building is a good way to keep people (and raccoons) out.  Maybe I should start asking before I use water fountains and public restrooms too.
