UKTodayNews.com: Security firm Sophos has revealed that more than one in four Wi Fi networks in London are poorly secured or not secured at all. It was found with the help of a scanning experiment which was conducted over two days by the firm’s director of technology strategy, James Lyne.

Lyne had cycled through the city with a computer set up to scan the wireless networks with the help of the standard equipment which is easily available at a normal cost to any hacker. The experiment conductor was also equipped with a GPS enabled device to create a ‘heat map’ which showed the comparative levels of security wireless networks n central London.
