Anyways, I got the below response from a guy.
"If you have to ask, then you don't understand. And probably never will. I could still poison you at layer 2 and if you don't understand the significance of certificates, I could then steal your online banking credentials and other credentials. Heh."
The guys right, I don't know and if I did I wouldn't be surfing various tech forums. Much of the information I have found is about wireless network security.
I am wondering what are the real dangers these days, and in regards what the guy said above, 100's of people sitting around plucking data from people on hotspot and public wi-fi connections. I have read that people can create destructive worms with tools these days with not a very high level of technical knowledge. Is this the same with people wanting to steal information and data of unsuspecting people using wi-fi technology. What exactly is the guy saying about "the signicance of certificates?"
I do not need to know how to do what the guy is saying, but is what he says a reality, and a common one.
