You can actually be setting yourself up for identity theft. A recent report entitled Internet Safety: The State of the Nation found that one in five, or 21%, of British households that use wireless broadband connections do not have password protection. These open portals leave users open to fraud, identity theft or worse. To combat this, in comes the ethical hackers. They’re a roving band of virtual vigilantes who are cruising neighborhoods and telling individuals that they are vulnerable. Some of them are even fixing the problem and showing people how to better protect their assets. But don’t wait for a hacker to hit your house, update your internet security immediately and protect yourself from identity theft.
