New research published that should make you pause for thought as you connect your laptop up to the hotel network the next time you’re away somewhere on business.

we were forced to conclude that guests’ data transmissions are often at risk

when they use a hotel’s network..

The findings reveal “that hotels in the U.S. are generally ill-prepared to

protect their guests from the security problems inherent in Ethernet. We were

forced to conclude further that most hotels have installed an amenity that they

may not be managing properly,”

The survey only covers hotels in the US, but I’d imagine that there’s a similar picture elsewhere too.
