But keep in mind, even it's unsecured, people have been successfully prosecuted for unauthorized access.
Rightfully so. Although, I think some of the burden SHOULD fall on the owner. If someone HACKs a network, prosecution is legit IMO. If you have it wide open, I can think of 1 or 2 reasons why I'd be using it. "Gee judge, I did not know I was connected to that network." Or "I thought it was free public Internet."....
Dunno if those would fly, and I doubt they fly with people who have good IT qualifications...but still.
This is for another thread though...just drank a bunch of cold coffee and am in OD.
