Londoners under Wi-Fi attack

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

As the dust settles on the government’s digital economy bill it seems that London is not the place to be using a home wireless network, because according to research from the online security firm Garlik, a third of London home networks are at risk from cybercriminals because their security settings aren’t adequate.

What this means for the householder is that if someone has accessed their home WiFi from the outside to share illegal content, the householder is at risk of being kicked off the internet for something they have not done.

The law states that the connection owner is responsible for any copyright issues that occur and not the person or persons who have committed the offence, which should give many Londoners something to worry about, as the first they will know about it is when a letter drops through their door.
