Wardriving

After reading JZ's posts about his wardriving experiences, it reminded me that I've been meaning to try it out. Some people I know have been going out and say they have found some interesting stuff. A lot of networks are not using WEP and so have easy access, some of them being home networks and some more interesting.

I would think that people would take more of a stance on security but obviously not. Some might think they are secure and would go crazy if they knew their networks were wide open.

I have wireless here, but I'm using WEP and it's only on when needed, instead of all the time which of course greatly reduces the chances of people gaining access. Maybe more people should use this method, kind of like with Bluetooth.

Switch off when not in use - or - get more of a clue before joining the wireless world.
