Have there been any cases of this? My wireless network extends into my
back yard. I have the security pretty low. For one, if you're in my
back yard long enough to hack behind the firewall, I have a bigger
problem. WHAT are you doing in my backyard!
Secondly all sensitive transactions I do are over SSL anyhow, so if
you're back there long enough to crack the 128 bit encryption on my
banking...again WHAT are you doing in my backyard! :-)
