|Quoting Klaus (Reply 3):|
Even when the network has proper encryption (which at this point means only WPA2 – all other encryptions have been cracked by now and offer no protection any more), all other logged-in users of the same network can normally still see your traffic as far as I'm aware (it is possible to compartmentalize WiFi networks, but that is not done very often), so a VPN could be sensible indeed.
|Quoting ALTF4 (Reply 4):|
WPA/2 sets up a session with each user, so only I can see my own traffic and not my cubical mate's.
|Quoting Klaus (Reply 5):|
I've just re-checked my information there; Apparently that's indeed standard in WPA2 (I had remembered that it was still optional). But the session key handshake can be snooped on, too, so you're not entirely safe from other users logged in to the same network, even if the security is better than with older protocols. In the end, your security will depend on the availability of ready-made exploits of such weaknesses to potential attackers.
|Quoting varigb707 (Thread starter):|
I use WiFi at work. It's a secure connection (PW, etc), but i'm still doubtful of its security. I spoke with an IT person, who suggested a VPN. I Googled it and found quite a few options. I used Cyber Ghost for a bit (recommended by PC World), but the FREE version will allow anyone with only a 1 GB usage per month. I know, i'm cheap... Oh Well.
So, any suggestions? That'd be great, thanks....
