'Warbiking' highlights the need for better wireless security

»www.cnet.com/news/warbiking-high···ecurity/ from »www.linuxsecurity.com/content/view/161856

"A high-tech bike ride around Sydney shows off how little thought many companies and individuals give to wireless security..."

Wardriving, warbiking, etc. What's next? Warwalking? Warrunning? Warsleeping, Wareating, Wardumping? :P

So if I walk around in ThinkGeek's wifi shirt, what'd that be? Warshirting?

If I walk around my work premises with a laptop running Netstumbler, I'd certainly call that warwalking. Used to do it all the time to check on the wi-fi, before we upgraded everything to Meraki. Now I can sit in my 65F office and look at signal levels from client machines in realtime.

If I'm in the car with a laptop and a Super Cantenna and I'm not driving, would that be warparking? Hmmm... why is everybody slowing down to the speed limit as they pass?

Maybe I leave an open WiFi because I want clever people to fall into my man in the middle attack. I'm always amazed how much people trust stuff they know nothing about like who owns a WiFi site or proxy and how it's being used.

Wardancing? Native Americans were so ahead of their time.

When I still lived in an apartment I left my wifi open. I used a Linux firewall/proxy server and would watch what people visited. When I got bored or if it was April Fools day I redirected their web traffic to different sites. I would set that up again, but there aren't many people near me and they all have wifi in their house.

That is almost as bad as a neodymium magnet on bottom of a softdrink cup at highway speeds... It sure keeps the tailgaters at bay by oh about 200 car lengths ....

Yep if your on their wifi or their proxy no amount of phish protection or encryption will help you in the end. At that point they can do a million and one things to get what they want leaving the user clueless.

What about a VPN and local host file with known good IP addresses?
