Online buyers who think they have bagged themselves electronics at prices too good to be true, could be right. The team at TradeMe have led police to a Hamilton man they claim used fake identities to sell electronics at a bargain. The 29-year-old is also accused of hijacking people’s wireless internet connections to sell the goods. He is facing 46 charges.
You have to be brainless not to secure your wireless network or at least have a bloody good reason to have one that’s open.
I can’t believe in today’s day and age people are so uninformed about the issues surrounding an open wireless network connection. Maybe I should believe it. There is an unsecured wireless network 2 doors down from us.
Come on people, It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to secure a wireless network. It’s not like you wouldn’t have got a manual for your router.
