Everyone, it seems, has a different way of passing their time in a hotel. Some
hit the town, many hit the restaurants, a lot hit the bars and more than a few
hit the pay-per-view. And some of us try to get some work done, and use the
wireless or Ethernet connections at $12.95 a day to connect to the home office.
But like the food in the restaurants or some of the creeps in the bars, these
always safe. It seems hotels are far more interested in collecting their
fees than in protecting your machine. Many of these Ethernet networks are hubs
that are completely unsecured. And the wireless ain't much better -- most are
also simple hubs.
