    This is Sophos complete nonsense. If I understand right by hiding one's SSID will make you less secure. Utter nonsense. I always believe in a layered security system. Wireless security is no different:

    1) Do "NOT" broadcast your SSID.

    2) A good password

    3) WPA2 encryption

    4) "Take good care" :) of your router.

    5) Good Luck...:D.

    Not what they say, they state in short that hiding your SSID will NOT make you more secure. That is basically correct.
