I plead guilty. My wireless network is poorly secured. The most effective defence mechanism I have put in place is naming the SSID "bugger off". The fact that the SSID isn't being broadcasted doesn’t add much to the security, nor does the WEP encryption. I can't use the safer WPA because my TiVo doesn't support it.
I trust that the script kiddies in the neighbourhood find and easier victim in the WiFi stations that do broadcast their SSIDs and whose owners never bothered to change the default passwords. For the capable hackers I am sure that they won't waste their time on haking their way into my banking records, and if they would be determined to hack my computer, they will find a way to get in anyway.
According a report from Datacomm Research Company my neighbours and I are typical WiFi users. In fact we are the driving force behind the trend that will propel the WiFi industry to double its revenues by 2009.
Enterprises are holding back on WiFi deployments because of security concerns, leaving home networking as the main market for wireless equipment makers. All they need are a few more suckers like me.
