"According to a recent Kaspersky Lab survey, 34 per cent of people using a PC admitted to taking no special measures to protect their online activity when using a Wi-Fi hotspot."
The key point is - THEY SHOULDNT HAVE TO. To the occasional elitist commentard posting on here - ask yourself - should your granny care whether her phone connection is on public or private wifi when she's checking facebook or email for the young 'uns?
The technology used should be secure by default, be that improved SSL or something else.
BTW was I the only one who though the Europol statement straight from the department of the blindingly obvious. Ok - which methods of public wifi access are at risk? Vanila uncrypted connections, SSL connentions, VPN's - what - give us consumers some useful info that we can take some action with.
