Re: [Full-disclosure] What is the ulitmate vulnerability ?



On a similair topic,
 
Wireless home networks;  on any given day I can see/break into and use networks that are not my ssid, barring the free internet access, I have stumbled onto the fact that if a user is subscribed to a flat rate service say Vonage and they happen to use wireless for their private network, its quite easy to piggyback free phone service as well. Simplistic in form, not so sophisicated in function, a major flaw in flat rate billing.
