SPOTLIGHT: Unsafe at any speed


A wardriving survey carried out internationally by PandaLabs has thrown up worrisome results: Almost 60 percent of networks have no protection at all. The conclusions of the study are clear: Security of WiFi networks is, in general, insufficient. The most widely used protocol for the security of the network, WEP, has many vulnerabilities, but the most effective protocols, such as WPA or WPA-PSK, are hardly used at all. PandaLabs was able to verify this circumstance through a series of wardriving surveys carried out in Sweden, Slovenia, Canada, and Argentina, among other countries. Report
