Someone Created Fake Wi-Fi Networks at the RNC — and it Could Affect Your Dealership
During the convention, security researchers with Avast Software set up fake Wi-Fi networks to try and hack unsuspecting attendees. During their experiment, more than 1,200 people connected and 70 percent of those exposed their identities while on the networks. Luckily, defending yourself or your dealership against these similar attacks isn’t difficult; you just have to be aware.
Almost every dealership now offers free Wi-Fi in their Service departments, so ask yourself: is your network set up to protect the identities of your customers?
