      "such as people sneaking on others' networks to traffic in child pornography, steal credit card information and send death threats."
      The practice is so new that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement doesn't even keep statistics

      The ignorant ppl in our govm't frighten me.

        my feeling on it is that, if there was no security on publically broadcasted radiowaves, its fair game.

        now if he broke a wep key, hacked in any, etc, then i can understand the charge.

          this guy installed a wireless router, connected it to the internet, failed to secure it, & now is pressing charges because someone was picking up what he freely through out there.....that's bull.....I have routers set up without security & I couldn't care less if someone accessed the internet through it....afterall I do that all over, all the time....it's called sharing

          I do however have a firewall up so my pc's are protected.....but the majority of times someone is accessing a signal it's not to hack someone elses computer or for espionage/death threats or to upload/download child porn......it's usually just to check e-mail, do web research or check there ebay...or even browse & post to mp3car.com.......sure there are some malicious people out there....but I don't think that's the norm.....

          about the only time I would complain about someone using my bandwith would be if they were hogging it & I had slow connections from it, but if that happened then guess what, I could just turn on security......wheres the problem.......

            I also have no problem with people sharing my router. In our Condo development the grounds by the pool and the club house are wired for wireless, free to residents. I have my own as I have trouble connecting to the community network ( weak signal).

            I'm bradcasting and recieving on the air freely the radio signal is out there and I can not prevent it from travelling over public roadways and or from other peoples houses. So as I see it if I do not specifically encrypt or otherwise protect from unauthorized access then go ahead and piggy back on my connection.

            The guy who complained that someone was using thier unprotected broadcast radio network has got real nerve. But the trial has not started yet. And if the guy who was arrested get a Lawyer that knows anything about Telecom and FCC laws. Then the guy who filed the complaint will be laughed out of court. If your network is unsecured then it is no different than ANY OTHER wirreless hot spot like the ones around Starbucks, or Borders Books or dozens of other municipal or commercial, free, hotspots.

              What a retarded article. Some rookie wrote that at 4 am. I coulda done better without any facts, just a name. If I cared enough, I bet there is a better source out there to find, and more to the case.

                  hey, wardriving isnt against the law; connecting to networks is. All wardriving is is the maping of ap locations.

                    Wow, but he was only piggybacking on his bandwith, so tell me what he did wrong? I understand the paranoia of seeing some dude in an SUV in front of your house on a laptop, but calling the cops and not turning on your firewall? What a ******* tool. He knows how to dial a phone, setup a wireless network, but not protect it. MORON!

                    Its in florida, south florida. Whitesville, with a sprinkling of very rich hispanics and blacks. People are paranoid of eachother, white peeple of everyone, hispanics of eachother (what does it feel like to have Nicaraguans, Columbians and Puerto Ricans all in the same cul-de-sac...ask me) No one in south florida is safe, its why they all live in tract housing with guard gates that make delivering pizza an hour affair.

                    **** the paranoid ****S of south florida. YOU are not special and YOU are a drain on society and the community. **** YOU i want a pink flamingo on my front lawn and I shouldnt need a permit to do so. bah im just ****y

                      Well, such map would be useless if it didn't get used then, would it?

                      Please don't forget; the term wardriving was inspired by the hobos who would use signs and symbols to alert fellow hobos of alerts or opportunities on the open road.

                        Actually, the article said it's in St. Petersburg, which is on the West Coast of Florida. I've never been over to that area except to Tampa Bay. Regarding South Florida, everytime I've been through Ft. Lauderdale and Miami there are many more Hispanics than White people... like you said, you could have three different Hispanic families from three different countries in your same cul de sac, jejeje.

                          That is gay, as far as i see it that guy didn't cause any harm what-so-ever to that man so it's not going to be able to go through court. In the US harm needs to be commited to the third-party in order to be processed through the court system, in this case i can't see any harm done since the guy with the Wi-Fi probably has broadband that is unlimited connection for a monthly price. I wouldn't be suprised to see this guy going to jail or "compensating" the guy with the stupid *** laws that we have in the USA.

                          Good Luck to the WarDriver, may the force be with him.
                          I hope this turns into a major lawsuit that changes laws, but it's just hop :-/

                          And about the whole getting caught thing, if your able to conceal your computer like in-dash then you should have no problem with gay people like Richard Dinon that narced on this poor guy.

                            The best part about the story is the guy whose network was accessed KNOWS about security. He just didn't bother to set it up. I believe he said something like. "Nobody around here knows how to access it, so I didn't bother."

                            Can we say asking for trouble?
