7 Year Old Girl Hacks Public Wi-Fi Network in 11 Minutes

After setting up a rouge access point, Betsy managed to eavesdrop on the willing participants (victim’s) internet traffic. §

Where to start?

  1. At least the little girl is being recognized for her computer skills.
  2. I’m sad the recognition comes from a let’s scare the stupid people article.
  3. But the article mentions hardened cyber criminals!
  4. /facepalm
  5. This is simply reading unencrypted web traffic.
  6. IT IS NOT “HACKING”.
  7. Do people do stupid things without encryption?
  8. OH GOD YES.
  9. Please use HTTP everywhere, a VPN, or at least make sure the padlock is in the address bar.
  10. Thank you. That is all.
