Insecure Wireless Networks

An expos of insecure wireless networks:

With a wireless ethernet card, a laptop and some basic software savvy, you can get on the Internet for free from almost anywhere in downtown San Francisco. In fact, you can get a lot more than free Web surfing. You can waltz unhindered into dozens of corporate networks and access passwords, databases and private e-mail.

Not all public wireless networks are there by accident, a number, such as Seattle Wireless, Pdx Wireless and Consume in London have been set up as community projects.
