A $60 Wake Up Call

SnoopstickI previously posted about the dangers of thinking portable applications and difficult passwords provide security when on vacation or using a machine that you do not completely control/ trust. The SnoopStick provides a $60 example of why you should not access anything from an uncontrolled machine and not expect that your keystrokes, screens and network traffic is being recorded. This is just one of many items that can record everything you do for as little as free.

Again, unless you are loading up your own operating system, using your own laptop, with a connection that is either encrypted or sufficiently secured, then you are not safe. All those portable applications and long passwords do is leave a longer string of information to record and pass on to the bad guys.
