Re: Wi-Fi routers: More security risks than ever

Quote:

"All an attacker has to do is go to his favorite Seattle-based coffee joint, buy a venti latte and a low-fat pumpkin ginger muffin, and get the establishment's Wi-Fi password. Then, equipped with access to the Wi-Fi network, all that attacker would have to do is use one of the exploits that ISE has uncovered. The router would be compromised, including all the Web traffic flowing through it."

Any time you access any "Free" WiFi, you are at risk. Oh well; nothing new except additional exploits.

VPN is your friend when using public wifi.
