Don’t Share Your Connection to the Internet with Strangers

Don’t be fooled into running an open, non secure wireless network by David Coursey’s column http://reviews-zdnet.com.com/AnchorDesk/4520-7296_16-5121168.html.

It isn’t safe, and your ISP’s terms of service probably prohibit this. And if you accidentally attach to the wrong SSID, your computer could be wide open. Securing your wireless is not optional. If you want to run a honeypot that has no DHCP server and isn’t connected to the Internet, be my guest, as long as you know what you are doing, but don’t offer unencrypted, free Internet trials.
