People shouldn¯¯¯t send sensitive information over public Wi-Fi hot spots because it risks being stolen, the top cybercrime police officer at Europol warned Friday. Troels Oerting, head of the cybercrime center at Europol¯¯¯the agency co-ordinating the work of police forces across Europe¯¯¯said consumers should send personal data only across networks they trust, given the growing number of attacks being carried out by hackers through via public Wi-Fi in places like shops, cafes and restaurants. The concerns from Europol come as cable groups like Comcast and Time Warner, supported by computer operating giants like Microsoft and Google, bid to expand the growth of Wi-Fi amid soaring global data traffic by pushing for the release of more telecom spectrum for unlicensed use.
