    NY case underscores Wi-Fi privacy dangers.

    A cautionary tale indeed! Secure your WiFi router from being an open wireless point of access to the Internet!

    This is not even the worst of it. Imagine people being able to hack into your network and computers, sniffing your traffic and capturing your personal information. This to me is far scarier. I thought all new routers default to some kind of encryption. Hasn't this been standard for years now?
