Hello,

I am writing a presentation on wireless security aimed at SMEs at a
cybercrime prevention event this month. I've been asked to keep the
acronyms and technical stuff out ( I may do a demo though :-). I am
trying to collect some wireless-security-related incidents with press
coverage to show the impact that careless wireless could have on
organizations and individuals.

The event is here in the UK but any relevant example will be ok. Does
anybody know or point me to some example in the press. As you would
expect, I haven't found many publicized incidents. While I can talk and
explain the risks it would like to show them some real example they can
relate to.

Ciao
Al
