Wi-Fi Still Not Secured?

Hat tip to Sven for this article.

A man in St. Petersburg, Fla was arrested for accessing someone else's wireless network without permission. Now, it might seem like common sense to a few people out there, but if you don't want strangers accessing your wireless network, why don't you secure it? If you do want to let people access your wireless network, then don't complain if you're accused of dealing in child pornography some day. It really is that simple. I think it took me all of a couple seconds to include a password requirement on our wireless network. It just isn't hard to do.
