Wait--did you read the terms and conditions before you clicked to agree to them? If you had, you might have spotted this passage:
In using this service, you agree to relinquish your first born child to F-Secure, as and when the company requires it. In the event that no children are produced, your most beloved pet will be taken instead. The terms of this agreement stand for eternity.
Oops! Well, the upside is that you now have free Wi-Fi access from F-Secure, a computer security company. Also, you won't have to spend as much money on Christmas this year.
To promote its services, F-Secure assembled a simple Wi-Fi hotspot, which is pictured above, from about $200 in parts. Company representatives took it to a busy shopping mall and convention center in London. In half an hour, they recorded 32 MB of data, such as passwords and private messages, from passersby who logged into their hotspot.
They deleted the information, of course. But that didn't diminish their point: your electronic information isn't necessarily secure if you use free Wi-Fi.
