I've done some reading on wireless Internet security risks and have taken some simple steps using native OS X apps (firewall, services, etc...), doing md5 checksums, watching important log files, password protecting things, but I also read an article about how easy it is to exploit a 'protected' wireless network using easily obtainable free software to sniff and crack one's way into unwanted territory. I've always liked the idea of setting up a small wireless setup in my apartment with the proper MAC filtering, firewall, WEP - whatever to protect it but, is there something I'm missing that's more effective (short of going with a secondary hardware firewall or going back to wired)? All of you with experience exploiting this or protecting yourself against it I'd love to hear your thoughts read your links. I've been taking my Powerbook around my area (war driving) just to see what hotspots are out there and it's quite disturbing to think people are so clueless about potential risks/problems with regard to their home networks. Thanks in advance.
