Re: "Insurance" on internet?!

Yes, but to what extent? I know open hotspots are a hard sell to defend. However, one can't say customers with WEP didn't attempt to lock their network down. True, tech savvy people keep up to date on the latest compromised WiFi encryption(s)...but what about the average consumer?

(edit) Nevermind. Looked at the article and it appears she was using WEP and still charged $1k+. Damn!

WEP's been a very flimsy boat lately. Well, it has been for a long time, but lately we've been seeing WEP-bypassing in the news at large. I think there are even tools out there today that make breaking WEP encryption about the same point-and-click difficulty as logging into Facebook.
