i just read this article and it says that you can log on to anothers computer with out knowing it thinking its a hotspot. My question is in wireless settings there are 2 types, access point and computer to computer. If i have only access point set would i be safe, or can a laptop setup to become an accesspoint? I connect to about 20 different access points everyday that i have no idea what they of or who owns them so im a bit conserned.
