+ - European Parliament culls public Wi-Fi access after email hack->

hypnosec (2231454) writes "A white hat hacker managed to break into multiple email accounts thereby forcing the European Parliament to cutoff its public Wi-Fi access. The French security researcher apparently performed man-in-the-middle attacks on multiple email accounts in a bid to expose the poor security at the Parliament. Through an internal mailer, members of the Parliament were informed that a “hacker has captured the communication between private smartphones and the public Wi-Fi of the Parliament (EP-EXT Network).” The public Wi-Fi has been cut-off indefinitely and users at located at Brussels, Strasbourg and Luxembourg have been advised to apply for certificates and switch to more secure networks."
