Do you have a Wireless network?
Did you know most home wireless networks are NOT secure?
"But I have a firewall so I'm safe aren't I?"
Having a firewall will normally stop
unauthorized access to your network or PC from somewhere else on the internet. However, having a badly configured wireless network means somebody may already be
ON YOUR NETWORK, without even having to come past the firewall.
Below is an example diagram of how this is possible; a network signal extends beyond the house walls into the street and somebody in a car with a laptop and wireless card is able to access any shared information and surf the web using your system:
There IS Good News However...
Your access point has a lock. Your wireless network devices have a key. Setting up both so that they match enables your access but stops others without the key accessing your system. Adding password protection to your shared network devices helps even more.
