Use Public Wifi? Here’s Why Snooping On You is Way Easier Than You Think

Use Public Wifi? Here’s Why Snooping On You is Way Easier Than You Think | Access Control Systems | Scoop.it

Hacking is so easy these days, even non-hackers can do it. Some kinds of hacking, that is.

Like public wifi, for example. To spy on people’s Internet browsing while they’re sipping a cup of brew, you don’t need to be a pro. Thanks to freely available online software, you barely need to know anything about coding.

I tell you this not to encourage you to start snooping around at coffee shops and airports. But so you’ll be better aware of the need to protect yourself against shady characters that do that sort of thing. Because the barrier to entry is not high.

In the same way that tools like Blogger and WordPress made it easy for anyone to have a good-looking blog without knowing a stitch of code, freely downloadable “sniffing” software has made it easy for anyone to be able to hack into someone’s wifi session and see what they’re surfing.

These software tools are actually meant for IT administrators to troubleshoot network problems. But like everything, they can be used for good or for evil. Read more: click image or title.

The point is, using the cloud does not increase the risk of a cyber attack. If criminals want to hack your data, it does not matter where you have hosted this data. Company servers, although monitored  internally will not act as a deterrent to cyber criminals.

Admittedly at the end of the day, the market is a far more secure place today than it was pre-NSA PRISM programme.
