Tyler Tobin: 
Hi Stan, This is Tyler Tobin and I wanted to address your questions. I travel and use the airport WiFi as well. However, before I use any WiFi I ensure that my computer is fully patched, my anti virus is up to date and my browser is protected by Sandboxie. For more information refer to John Sileo's blog which her prepared for this presentation: http://www.sileo.com/free-wifi-hotspots/

Little Brown Mouse: 
what does it mean, that your computer is "fully patched"? And I've never heard of "Sandboxie" either. Will they work for Macs?
Thursday May 9, 2013 8:45 Little Brown Mouse

Tyler Tobin: 
Little Brown Fox, Mac Computers are somewhat different when it comes to vulnerabilities. They can be a more secure solution when it comes to using rogue WiFi connections if it is properly configured. Sandboxie is a program that allows users (Mac) included if using the Windows Operating System - to surf the web in a secure fashion. It isolates your web session from infecting your entire computer.

Little Brown Mouse: 
Tyler, your reply seems to indicate that I don't need "Sandboxie" for my Mac unless it's operating a Windows OS. Is that correct? What must I do to be sure that my Mac is properly configured? Is that what you mean by "fully patched"?

Bigmig, for the most part your keystrokes are not captured at all. The attacks that are performed go after your actual hard disk drive not keystrokes. So feel free to keyboard away!

Tyler Tobin: 
The share setting cannot always be configured so to disable that may not be possible. However, devices (iPad, Mac and Windows) can be configured to not share directories like your Pictures and videos. So to answer your question - disable computer sharing, not application sharing.

Eric Sinclair: 
Hello there, I noticed that you guys displayed a little about wifi hacking. I am sure you are away of RATS and Keylogger's as well and I think it would be an excellent idea to let the general public know about these software. Also the public should know that WEP security can be cracked in less then ten minutes in most cases using Backtrack5. Whats the best way to protect yourself against theses attacks as AntiVirus programs don['t work on these cause they are crypted

Tyler Tobin: 
Gregory Nidy - when a hacker comes across an open WiFi they may often times try to use that open access point to perform malicious operations - surf bad sites and download bad stuff if you know what I mean. At this point you the WiFi owner may have to prove their innocence.
Thursday May 9, 2013 9:20 Tyler Tobin

Eric Sinclair: 
I am a former Ratter myself so I do have some knowledge on this and know how dangerous it can be. That was my teen years as I've cleaned up and vowed to white hat only. Even as stated if the hacker was able to get on your network he could esentially get into your pc even create admin accounts and litterally turn your world upside down, I dont think the public is aware of this. You guys should show a demo of what it looks like on the hacker's end so people get better insight. I use backtrack now for making sure I am fully or as much protected as I can be, But we have to be honest here, Backtrack is not for everyone

Thursday May 9, 2013 9:21 9NEWS

To hack into a computer on an open WiFi the computer or device must meet certain criteria. Often times hackers lie in wait for the right opportunity to come their way.

John Chilson - I also run Android. The OS is as secure as they can get, but there is always a chance. However, most hackers go after the lowest hanging fruit - so they would pass you by - that is my thought.

Eric Sinclair: 
My best advice is to use common sense. Dont use easy passwords as their are text files on the net that are over 10 gigs big filled with passwors so make sure you have a unique password that can't be in no dictionary at all. Dictionary is a attack method for aircrack-ng or other software to use it instad of brute forcing your password. Essentially there is no true protection but you deffiently can make it a nightmare for the hacker and he would just then quit. I would suggest using Truecrypt but you need to know how it works before just doing so. Change your passwords all the time. Social Engineering attacks are very easy to do, it's not hard to get someone your don't know to trust you and you don't realize the info you gave out is essentially being used against you. Most people choose passwords that are involved with them somehow so don't use your birthdate,ssn,phone number, etc...

Tyler Tobin: 
GOP - I do find that Mac's can have open shares just as Windows. Sometimes it is the simple configuration settings that allow us in - not the overall security.
