And I love this. I love it because even if you mess with people using your wifi it's fine right? Since they are hopping on your network? Anyway the best part to me is just knowing enough to mess with people to this extent who think they are preying off a dumb sap who left his wireless unlocked.
my main question is are there any other cases of this? I'm sure people have done other things but I'd like to hear how creative people have gotten :matey:

This has been around for practically forever I think, but it's still interesting.
While not so much on the side of "creative" as it is "malicious", when someone is using your "free wifi" it is entirely possible for you to automatically MitM their connections via all sorts of methods. You can simply code up the gateway to strip all SSL, provide false certificates, or even just have the DNS resolve to a malicious site you have hosted on your LAN that "looks" like paypal or facebook. Record SSL sessions and website passwords/usernames, and then leave it running for a few months. Guaranteed you'll get lots of results. Using "free wifi" can be far more dangerous than most people comprehend.
The irony of man's condition is that the deepest need is to be free of the anxiety of death and annihilation; but it is life itself which awakens it, and so we must shrink from being fully alive. http://www.stealt. . .
