Submission + - More Superbowl Insecurity - A Wifi Problem (praetorianprefect.com)

danielkennedy74 writes: It’s an annual puff piece, whoever is in charge of security at the Super Bowl appears on the news in front of some barrier or computer screen, talking about the number of security guards, guard dogs, or whatever else passes as some grand measure of the ‘amount’ of security being applied. And as with Super Bowl XLVII when two students just walked right in to the game simply by acting like they belonged, a news feature on Super Bowl XLVIII shows why bragging about your security can backfire.

Yup, that’s Marko’s wifi (wireless network) password in the corner of the screen on the monitor, complete with clear text password for those who don’t want to bother to break it.
