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.
  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.
