Mumbai Police Enforce Wifi Security

Police in Mumbai are to undertake random checks of residential Wifi networks to detect unsecured WLANs. Local police, still reeling I'd guess from those awful attacks in Mumbai, believe that unsecured networks have been used by terror groups, as well as for other criminal activities.

"We may issue notices under the Criminal Procedure Code to those who do not secure their WiFi network in the future," a senior police officer told the Times of India.

Do you think people should be compelled to secure their networks? Is it irresponsible to leave an wireless network open? Share your thoughts using the comments feature.
