Stop Wardriving: Protect Your Wireless Network

Stop Wardriving: Protect Your Wireless Network. Computerworld News has a story on Protecting Organizations From Prying Wi-Fi Hackers. Not sure why this is important? Check out C|Net's step by step explanation of how “wardrivers” can penetrate an unsecured wireless network. Using an unsecured wireless network for client matters is risky. In fact, I recommend lawyers think twice before using even wireless networks protected only by the standard level of encryption (WEP). It is so easy to crack that C|Net feels compelled to warn: “ Yes, WEP is breakable, but you shouldn't be out there to break into networks; you should be out there to work and play on the Internet while sitting at your favorite café.” Not everyone will heed C|Net's warning.
