A couple guys got nailed for hacking into Lowe's national computer system using a Wi-Fi connection from the parking lot of one of the stores: They're accused of changing files, stealing credit card info and installing malicious software. TechDirt wonders if those accusations are unfounded and if the press is going to have a field day with this.
This may offer an interesting case to watch. The original story says that the guys have been charged with causing damage to a protected computer system. I wonder how the court will define a protected Wi-Fi network. Will WEP count?
