A client of mine, a small computer store in a mall surrounded by many other stores
received a letter advising them not to use laptops in their business, or they would
face legal action for attempted hacking. Sounding suspicious, they contacted me
with this letter and I took a look.
It came from the legal office two stores up, a legal office that it turned out had an
unsecure wireless network that people nearby had been using. Instead of getting
their own IT support fixing the problem, they send out letters to every other store
owner in the mall to stop them using laptops so nobody else could get into their
Lawyers. Legal threats first, common sense last!
