We're in Yer Coffee House, Stealing Yer Bandwidth!

Posted by Anonymous on Thu, Feb 21, 2013 at 1:20 PM

Thank you public meeting spaces of Portland, (and the world for that matter), with zero IT savy. You provide fertile ground for me and those like me to hone my skill set. As I write this We are using bit torrent to copy no less than three movies, a porn clip and the last Gaga single, not to mention port scanning the fancy Macbook Air of the guy sitting next of me. The coffee house we are sitting in went to all the trouble of requiring a password to gain access to the wireless, but failed to lock down admin functions. For those with our skill set, not only have you left the front door wide open, but you have put up a Las Vegas sized neon sign that reads "Ignorent and gullible, please exploit". I can see who is plugged into the internet from here and what they are doing, in real time. Credit card transactions from that Ipad you call a register, yep I can see those too. Even if ya'll had made it "difficult" for us by taking BASIC SECURITY PRECAUTIONS, when it comes to computer and network security, the emperor has no clothes. I am Anonymous, and by now, you should expect us...
