    Specs:
    Mac Mini 2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo & Powerbook G4 12" G4 1.5 also iPod Touch 32
    WiFi Security Issue (from Yahoo article)
    Does anyone know what exactly they're talking about in this article? http://news.yahoo.com/s/nf/20060803/tc_nf/45115 Or if this was discussed somewhere please direct me. I'd like to take preventative measures but they're so hush hush as to not tip off hackers, a wireless n00b like me doesn't know what they're talking about.

    Thanks!

    The best ways to avoid any issues with wireless are fairly easy:

    1 - Enable WPA2
    2 - Use MAC adressing
    3 - Turn your SSID off

    Way to many people leave their wirless networks open and have no idea what they are exposing themselves to.

    These folks specifically mentione OSX as a scare tactic. They admitted that the same issues are present with Windows but did not tell you how much more precvelent it is with Windows, as well as Windows OS faults that make it easier.
