Wi-Fi Security weaknesses exposed by Google Street View.
Everyone should be grateful that the Wi-Fi Security weaknesses exposed by Street View’s Cars has brought this matter to the attention of so many people.
Just think (if you are using Wi-Fi) as you are reading this comment your computer could be easily accessed from a car or a neighbor in your street and it could be downloading illegal material for which you could be fined or imprisoned depending on the content of the download.
This brings me to say that the Laws as to downloading martial as they are cannot be seriously enforced, as anyone could have placed this material on you ISP’s server track record (and or on your computer’s hard drive) simply by carrying out the latter.
As to encryption of your ‘Wi-Fi Security System’ there are devices that can decrypt any encryption in a matter of minutes sometimes-even seconds.
Remember the pub owner in UK (under Mandy's revised Law) was fined £8000 when one of his customers was caught downloading copyrighted digital content from the pub’s Wi-Fi See ‘Digital Rights Act/ Digital Economy Bill’ is legally seriously flawed. http://tinyurl.com/y9nfdga

Privacy is the number one thing that Google is paying attention to that's why Google also exposed the weaknesses of this.
There are some product or service providers that would not do this in order for them to earn more money. It would be a good thing for Google for doing this. I think what Google should do is to cooperate with the best auto repair shops specialists that would also give them feedbacks about their product in cars.
Wi-Fi Security would be a tough job. But once Google accomplishes this, there would be a lot of people that wouldn't deny how helpful it is in their lives.
I believe that Google has a good plan in this and I would bet that they could do the best in this issue. Go for it Google!
goofygoldberg:Wi-Fi Security would be a tough job.
Not as tough as it seems... Mostly every Wi-Fi spot around my neighborhood is protected by WPA or WEP; only one wi-fi spot seems to be unprotected, let's hope Google hasn't come by his house by now.
In all serious, there needs to be notice given to those people who are running their routers unprotected that they get need to get some sort of security up stat. I mean what if some malicious criminal comes along, then what will they do?
