"Moocherhunter" to the Rescue

By November 30, 2012

Follow me on:

It's easy enough these days to set up a wireless network (or WiFi) anywhere. Most of us even use it at home. But when someone else gets an IP address from your WiFi, they are actually hiding behind you. For friends and family, this isn't a big deal, but what if they are breaking laws?

Moocherhunter is one of the coolest additions to the law enforcement arsenal I've seen in years. This program helps the police zero in on exactly who is using a specific internet signal, which is bad news for bad guys, and great news for those of us who have concerns about being blamed for someone else's malfeasance.

Interesting name for a device. I know attacks on wi fi, even if encrypted has been rising and sadly become easier. I wonder if it is even possible to hack an air card. I like using an air card I feel its a little more secure.
