And you think you are more secure having your emails on gmail/hotmail/yahoo servers?
I would really like to know if there was any usable data whatsoever. I so doubt it. A couple packets here-n-there.
I can only add, if you are working over an open wifi - you deserve to be sniffed.
There is no banking going over nonhttps.

That's not what ppl are talking aobut in this thread.
Then the law is mostly unenforcable until someone admits they broke it. That is no justification for breaking a law, but in most countries it is legal to drive through a red light if it is clear the traffic signal is broken. The "data protection" act that covers open public networks - is clearly broken.
It is one thing when Google does something with clear nefarious intent light Google Buzz, but this looks totally innocent.
I am far more upset they are putting street view pictures on Google without permission. WiFi networks? Sniff 'em at will.
