In this thread in GQ, saoirse posted a question about a name for using someone else’s wireless internet. Derleth pointed out all the interesting things you can do when someone connects through your hardware. So, I’m wondering, what do people think about doing that kind of thing? I assume the question varies by what you do. Some specific ones I wonder about-
How about the trick Derleth noted about inverting all images they see?
What about redirecting them to a different site? What if that site is obscene or otherwise inappropriate.?
How about pulling passwords or even bank account numbers? I’m pretty sure using them is well beyond what is acceptable, but just pulling them?
A lot of specific questions, but the main question is, what do you think is acceptable to do to someone using your wireless without permission?
