If I connected my netbook to a wireless network in some sort of event where they put on free wifi for you, what in theory could someone do to my netbook? Firewall would be on, fully updated Ubuntu 12.04.
I realise that in a wpa/wpa2 network that is using a key, the data between me and the router/ap is encrypted. Am I missing something else that is obvious and a security risk?
I’m interested to see what sort of answers come back, I feel I have a good handle on wireless security but this question has just popped into my head.
