What Hotels Should Learn from AOL

Aol

Today's NYTimes (registration required) exposes a security flaw in most public WiFi networks -- the ability for someone to hack in and capture information. In one case, someone was routinely able to capture around 100 passwords per visit at about half the hotels surveyed.
