The 'Evil Twin' Wi-Fi Threat

If you are a frequent user of wireless hotspots, beware of using them to pass on any credentials (don't log into your email account or use them for online banking or shopping). Hackers are setting up fake hotspots along side legitamate ones to resemble the legitimate Wi-Fi hot spots and fool unsuspecting users to log on their networks. Hackers then can intercept transmitted data including user credentials and other sensitive information. Click link for more information.
