UK’s WiFi very much free for hackers

While it is very much an open fact that close to one in four private networks in the UK market have no passwords but still close to 82% of the companies operating in the country claim that they operate on a secure WiFi network.

However, according a recently done experiment by the by life assistance company CPP said that it hired ethical hackers with a motive to judge the security of WiFi networks in the UK region but have come out with a fact that it is on a high-risk factor.

The survey said that close to 40,000 networks are running on high-risk. While names like Cryptocard SVP Jason Hart were included in the list of ethical hackers but as the growth in the smartphone and wireless network category is very high, it is expected that it is become far easier for hackers to crack usernames and passwords, allowing them access to emails, social networks, and online banking sites.

The experiment also said that the hackers were able to obtain usernames and passwords from the public network only while they were sitting in the town-centre coffee shops and restaurants, at a rate of more than 350 an hour.
