Wireless networks and always-on connectivity are a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, these technologies give us access to more knowledge and entertainment than ever before. We can work wherever we want, stream video and music wherever we want and have the full Internet experience at the tips of our fingers.
On the other, however, we have a constant vulnerability to potential attacks. Fraudsters and hackers are consistently working to find new ways to break into devices, steal data and make a profit. One of these ways is a process called “wardriving”, which uses the reality of Wi-Fi hotspots to facilitate attacks.
