California Law To Require Wi-Fi Warnings

Starting October 1, 2007, manufacturers should include security warning stickers on all wireless home networking equipment sold in California. The “Wi-Fi User Protection Bill,” which Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed into law on September 30, 2006, aims to block unauthorized sharing of open WiFi networks and inform consumers of the dangers associated to using unsecured networks. Major vendors like Linksys, Netgear and Buffalo Technology welcome the new law because it will increase the awareness of consumers concerning wireless networking security.
