Top ten places your email can be intercepted

Author: JT Smith

WildID.com: "We will attempt to outline the varying paths that an email message may travel, and who some of those different people and
organizations might be under whose scrutiny the message may pass. The intention of the document is not to provide a how-to
guide; the only specific technique that will be discussed, packet sniffing, is one that anybody with any technical networking
knowledge whatsoever is already familiar with - which brings us to an important point. At a round number, there are probably
at least a million people in the world with the requisite technical knowledge necessary to intercept Internet-based email. Yes,
I said a million. (There are actually probably a lot more than that - maybe several million by now, and more everyday as the
populace becomes more networking-literate.)"
