>An experiment conducted by BBC Online found that the "wifi" (wireless)
>computer networks in London's financial center have serious security gaps
>that would allow network vandals to drive, pedal a bike, or walk through
>the streets and pick up information from the networks almost at will. The
>problem will only be solved when companies take security seriously and
>protect wireless networks behind a firewall that allows only encrypted,
>authenticated traffic to pass from a wifi network to a wider corporate
>network. (BBC News 6 Nov 2001)
