A coffee shop right next to my job just opened up a free wifi network. Obviosly I know there are many risks associated with using these types of networks, but what specifically can I do to make sure I am not compromised? I have my Shared Folders turned off, have Avira AntiVirus and Comodo Firewall. I also have Spyware and Adaware programs, but I am just curious if there is anything else I should be aware of. Is there any software that will alert me when someone attempts to connect to my machine when on this type of network?
Friends, help! A guinea-pig tricked me!
