Here's a video from the Tech Guy radio show, involving a woman calling in who'd been stealing her Internet connection for over a year when the signal disappeared, and she wants help in getting it back. It's not clear whether she understood what she had been doing, but she certainly seems to have been infected with the Entitlement bug.


A lot of people don't understand how vulnerable they are. Where I live, I can "see" as many as 7 or 8 wireless networks at any given time, and about half of them aren't protected at all, and most of the ones that are protected are using WEP, the most easily-cracked type of encryption. I've yet to see one using WPA2, the most current and secure encryption scheme. The worst case would be using an insecure connection and having network file-sharing turned on, which would give an intruder access to not only your Internet connection, but to the shared folders as well.
