Re: Man Charged With Stealing Wi-Fi Signal
I can see both sides of it, but I'd like to know more about how he was caught. Victim is such a dumbass he can't change router power levels, wep, ssid broadcast, etc. - but he can read a mac log and chart times and figure out this guys wardriving? my ass!
I'd assume this went down as it did because local law probably thinking terrorist link - call federal, and once they get involved there has to be a result, and since not homeland security issue - this is what we get.
I'd also like to know about what kind of legislation they are going to bring against those individuals operating fake AP's in an attempt to syphon off info. from the fools that just think the world consists of free Wifi hotspots.
For the first year of my residence here i reconfigured my neighbors wireless connections, if for no other reason then getting tired of seeing 'wireless connection DEFAULT is available..' a million times a day. Never anything major, just making it not as easy for anyone in the planet to get in.
why put off today what you can wake up late and forget to do tomorrow.
