Video: Is That Wifi Spot Legit?

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Great quote in this local news video: “They say locks are for honest people. You know what I mean, and it’s the same thing with the Internet.”

This is a good reminder that wireless in airports and hotels could be fake, and although the news clip doesn’t mention using a personal VPN like PRIVATE WiFi, it does discuss other security measures.

Also featured in the video is a college software information systems major and Vice President of the 49th Security Division — UNC Charlotte’s computer security club.

The video shows him easily setting up an unsecured hotspot, and he reminds us that “the bad guys can do it too.”
