War Driving

August 24 9:24 AM

Okay so my 24/7 interest in computers is waning a bit, but apparently the geek will never fully leave me. I decided last night to do some war driving in my little town. I started in McDonalds drive-thru and was on their Waypoint service by the time I was done ordering and before I got my food.

Then I took a trip over to the "rich" end of town and found at least 4 wireless networks per block and at least half of them were fully open. So I was online with a lot of them. I'm going to update my setup a bit to make this a little easier and go out again and see just how secure (read: accessible) their home networks actually are.
