InternetNews: "ISS claims perpetrators can equip their laptops with wireless technology, sit inconspicuously on a park bench, or in a car,
and casually monitor traffic, access applications, and hijack data flowing over someone else's wireless network,
unbeknownst to the victim. To combat this threat, which sounds like it could be a plot line from an upcoming James Bond film,
ISS Wednesday drew the curtain on wireless local area network (WLAN) security software and consulting practices."
