WIFI network is here. But how safe is it?

WIFI is slowly moving into Indians homes. It is great way to share files, browse net without wires while working with PDA, Smart phone, laptops etc.

This weekend I was at my friend house. It was fun. Later he proudly displayed his Wifi network to me. Just like many Wifi users, he forgot to encrypt and secure his network. It was open to anyone to access his ISP.

My friend was not sure about this he said could we use other Wifi network in building. Soon we discovered three open wifi network 🙂 with default password turned on (see list of default password)

Finally, we ended up securing my friends wifi network.
