Wardriving for WLAN security

Thursday, 17 June 2004, 12:21 AM EST

The 4th Annual Worldwide Wardrive is under way this week, with volunteers scanning the airwaves in a neighborhood near you for WLAN access points.

This year's WLAN discovery effort began June 12 and runs through June 19.

The WWWD is organized by a mixed group of security professionals and hobbyists who cruise areas to document the location of access points and how many of them have even minimal security. The goal is to boost awareness of the need to secure residential and corporate WLANs.
