Dangers of Wi-Fi hot spots

One of the biggest threats for free Wi-Fi is the ability for the hacker to position himself between you and the connection point. So instead of talking directly with the hotspot, you're sending your information to the hacker, who then relays it on. The hacker now has access to all the information such as important emails, credit card information and even security credentials to your business network. Once the hacker has that he can access your systems as if he were you

Hackers will also use unsecured Wi-Fi's to distribute malware. If you have enabled "file-sharing" across your network, the hacker can then plant infected software called Phishing on your computer and on your network. Many hackers have even hacked the "connection point" directly, causing a "pop-up" window to appear during the connection process. Sometimes these Pop-Ups will offer an upgrade to a piece of popular software. Clicking this then installs the malware

Even those who will take all the possible public Wi-Fi security precautions will come across issues. It is just a fact of life. That is why it is so important to keep a up-to-date Internet Security Solution installed and running. The top consumer security software will also offer business protection solutions, so you can protect yourself and your business at the same time

There will be a time when an unsecured, free, public Wi-Fi is the only connection available, But understanding the risks of public Wi-Fi will help you to ensure that you and your information will not become just another hacking statistic
