A secure internet is absolutely essential. Most people don’t even know why–if your wireless internet works, why bother with putting a password on it? Look at this story published on the Huffington Post:
Lying on his family room floor with assault weapons trained on him, shouts of “pedophile!” and “pornographer!” stinging like his fresh cuts and bruises, the Buffalo homeowner didn’t need long to figure out the reason for the early morning wake-up call from a swarm of federal agents…That new wireless router. He’d gotten fed up trying to set a password. Someone must have used his Internet connection, he thought.
“We know who you are! You downloaded thousands of images at 11:30 last night,” the man’s lawyer, Barry Covert, recounted the agents saying. They referred to a screen name, “Doldrum.”
The images in question were child pornography. With an unsecured wireless, anyone can connect and do anything. We can secure your wireless and make such activities impossible.
