"Free Public Wifi"... Nothing is free, right?

Just a quick note to keep computer security at the forefront of your consciousness. If you have ever been around town, at a hotel or airport looking for free Internet service, be careful. There is a new attack out there that uses your desire for free Internet access against you. If you see an advertised network that is called “Free Public Wifi” do not try to connect. Your PC might be vulnerable to attack if you try to connect. I have included a link to a discussion article about this issue.
