In this article “The Hi Tech Crime Investigation Unit* of Queensland’s ever-vigilant Police force will shortly spend some of its valuable time driving around Brisbane, the fair tropical state’s Capital, looking for open WiFi connections, the better to inform citizens about the terrible dangers that may flow from signal slurping.

Detective Superintendent Brian Hay said, in a statement, that the force has already spotted lots of open connections and that users who leave WiFi open “may as well put their bank account details, passwords and personal details on a billboard on the side of the highway.”
