WAR Driving
by rob
WAR (Wireless Access Roaming) Driving is how nefarious individuals attempt to gain access to your wireless network. Armed with a car, a wireless laptop, a portable GPS device, and a powerful antenna to boost their signal, hackers cruise around cities, neighborhoods and office parks looking for available wireless networks. Once they find an open connection, they record its GPS location and announce the availability of the network to the whole world via the Internet. Guess what? This is perfectly legal (for now). See this month's article on how to secure your wireless network to keep the bad guys away.
