Who sends a letter to the RIAA informing them of their pirating activities?

I’ve written a number of blog posts about the RIAA, and how people have been wrongfully accused of stealing (pirating) by the RIAA, and law suits threatened. Well, it appears, that someone at the RIAA has been doing a little illegal downloading of their own, though the RIAA claims it was not them. Here’s more information: http://torrentfreak.com/riaa-someone-else-is-pirating-through-out-ip-addresses-111221/ So secure those …

Did you secure your Wi-Fi acess point yet?

JohnMHoyt broadband, Business, Computer Repair, Computer Security, Computer Service, Connectivity, Homeland Secure IT, security Leave a Comment

Last week I was discussing RIAA letters to people who had supposedly downloaded music illegally and it turned out it was neighbors using their wifi connection. I wonder if anyone was paying attention?  If you did not secure your wireless access point after that, then maybe THIS will encourage you to do so… A dispute with neighbors turned ugly back …

WSPA’s Amy Wood (@TVAmy) had a great segment on last night (2011-02-07) in which she had Doug Cone (@nullvariable) a local web/graphics “devsigner” discussing the dangers of using public Wi-Fi.
