So according to this article, Wi-Fi in Asia is pretty dangerous? what soft of computer-based attacks would these be? And I never even heard of "burner devices" are these Chromebooks or something?

 

"For example, users traveling to Asia are routinely attacked on hotel networks – even before they get on the VPN. Some companies try to educate their employees on the dangers of using free Wi-Fi, be it a cheap coffee shop or a swanky hotel. But what should an employee do if they need to access their email or data? Other companies invest in burner devices that are ground up and thrown away after employees travel because of this inability to detect issues and untrustworthy devices, networks and sites"
