Given your sig, is that 2 times or 10 times more secure? :)
I agree, though. I know some banks running 2.4 wireless inside the building.
Apparently they aren't aware of the wonderful abilities to kick a mac off,
assume it and have instant access to all the shares the original owner had
(M$ file sharing trust issue?). When it comes to a bank, any security issue,
no matter how small is a major one. Of course, there's probably still a
hacker in Russia somewhere enjoying the fruits of CityBank. :) Then again,
he may have died of old age by now.
