IdBeCrazyIf: Well were they hot?

Not even by Florida standards.

It's also got a very Romero-ish vibe going on.

All in all, damn near a perfect story for Florida. Had there been strippers and an alligator, it might've hit #1.

The story is missing the hurricane and the sink hole.

this is why I don't have wireless in my house. I simply do not trust it. Encrypted or not.

Well of course you don't want wireless in your house. You want your neighbor's wireless, obviously.

I think I saw this in a movie once...

"Nothing But Trouble" (1991).

Thanks for the concern about open internet connections chief.

How about the kids? They okay? They get taken to child services, given to someone that'll give a damn??

Miller was stealing Davis' unsecured Internet connection which deputies say she used to send pornographic images of herself with her two children.

I saw that movie on cable late one night when I was about 10, alone in my dad's house. Scared the crap out of me. It probably contributed to my distrust of small-town authority figures.

I'm the same way, and I'm no luddite. I used to be in the SIGINT business.

FTA: "What you want to do is secure it. The router has the ability to add an encryption key that is a series of numbers or letters that only you would know because it's programmed into your router then you would make the connection with your laptop. Your equipment, your laptop, would remember that."

What? So a series of letters, like a word maybe? Some kind of word that allows you to pass by security? If only there was a shorter way to describe this.

Well... I am glad they consulted with the local hillbilly craigslist computer fixin guy.
 
2010-10-08 03:24:23 PM  
My main question is where do you get a new encryption key if yours gets lost?
 
2010-10-08 03:24:32 PM  
Wait....they executed a no-knock warrent on a non-violent offender and got the wrong house even though they had pictures of the suspect? That's some fine police work there Lou
 
2010-10-08 03:24:57 PM  
So, did he secure the router or not? Don't leave me hanging.

I hated, HATED, HATED that movie. It was on HBO ALL THE FLIPPIN TIME when I was 12 and it freaked me the hell out. I don't know how 3 of my favorite actors ever could come together to put together and the result be so terrible.

I swear to god, this exact same thing happened to me when I was in high school. I was at a friend's house, just shooting the shiat and playing Mario Kart, and all the sudden a SWAT team busted the door down and pulled out their guns and were telling us to get down on the floor and pushing us all over... and then they tore everything apart searching the place. Turns out the guy from the upstairs apartment was stealing the WiFi to upload child porn. farking insanity.

i didnt even make that connection. that does sound a little fishy. thats why i keep all of my "illegal" items in a safe that looks like a Spray 'N Wash can.

Came here to say this.

But also - people won't lock down their wireless unless the AP forces the consumer to do it. Fortunately most consumer APs on the market do and do so in a fashion that doesn't require the user to have a PhD in Information technology. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it) there are hundreds of thousands of AP still out there open for the entire world.

/runs a open AP just for kicks - but just redirects the user to a page with a big eye and the words "hi there!"

Love the fact they actually explain how to secure your wireless and protect yourself from snooping in an article about a sick idiot sending child porn who got caught for not taking the precautions they helpfully outline.

Yeah, Florida will need hills before it can have hillbillies. Maybe it can annex Alabama.

yea ... i'm finally down to just one internal router and two subnets (down from eight). And I also stopped hosting my own e-mail server and gave up my static addresses. Times are changing...

My parents are in their 70s, and are fairly computer savvy in a 1980s Macintosh Classic way. Anyway, turns out they were having wireless router problems, and in helping them found out they had not secured it.

Ever try to walk your elderly parents through enabling encryption on a router over the phone? Not as easy as the cop in the article makes it out to me.
