HOW TO: So, you want to engage in some Starbucks hacking?
By Derek Kortepeter
People go to coffee shops like Starbucks or Peets for many reasons. For me, personally, it is for an overpriced cappuccino that tells the world I am an important guy and probably work on really lucrative projects. That’s just me? OK then… Besides ego boosts, a major reason people go to coffee shops is the free WiFi that students, writers, and countless other individuals use for convenience. For cybersecurity pros, public WiFi is a place we like to avoid. The possibility for malware infection and Man-in-The-Middle attacks are enough to keep us away from such networks.
