I don't know of anyone using WIFI for any other reason than to connect to the Internet. WIFI is just a way to get to the router that gets one to the ISP that get one to the Internet. From a user point of view the precautions are the same.

No...

As others have said, the only websites that are safe are ones that are https://. If it doesn't have that "s" you are vulnerable.
Again.. this has nothing to do with whether you are secure 'on the net'. With WiFi, the intercept comes before/after the net...

No, that is incorrect. Sticking to https sites not only protects you from Firesheep sidejacking (and similar) it is currently the only way to protect yourself when on free WiFi.

The most common way to steal a password is still the old note left in a desk drawer or other place.. Like the person who left his wallet on the counter at a hotel.. He had his ATM card in the wallet and since it was not easy to remember he'd written his PIN on the card..... You can likely guess the next part of the story (The clerk cleaned out his account if you can't) and I will tell you the rest.. The ATM took the clerk's picture.. The State police took a few of her too. With numbers.

One thing that you need to do is watch out for fake Wi-Fi sites.. Those can get you big time. Learn the nodes you use.

But truthfully.. You break into my accounts you are going to get away with what..... $0.68.. Not worth the 20 years you may well spend without internet access.

Still.. No. It seems that people getting screwed will happen for at least the foreseeable future as nobody actually understands... or want to.

Interesting little plugin for Firefox, this is why I use a 128bit encrypted Socks 5 Tunnel.

I use a utility known as an anonymizer which basically hijacks the WinSocks system on the PC its setup on and routes ALL DNS and other traffic through the Socks 5 proxy, once the tunnel is opened, no further local DNS calls are made.

I've been using it for quite some time, the system I usually connect out through is behind a custom built PC which uses an OS whose sole purpose is to be a router and firewall.

So, when I go out on the net, my connection is also going through a defended system I custom built. This system has been running without fail and without breach for 7 years now (365 days a year, with only a few downtimes due to power outages or ISP failures .
