in thread Installing perl modules via webmin

One word of caution concerning feeling safe and cozy in our 'local lans'...I have noticed several colleagues putting wireless gateway's on their lans which exposes them to anyone who happens to drive by (not that any of us would ever do that)....in that scenario you have to treat your local lan like a public network and apply appropriate security to your systems....or better yet, firewall off the wireless and only allow authenticated sessions back into your network...but that is another thread ;-)

    This happens, it happens behind your back, and it may *happen* to you.   See County cuts off computer network.

    Now the background behind this is that the computer center people knew *nothing* about this, not having been consulted on how to set up a wireless lan.   They got blind-sided by idiots who all along insisted they could maintain their own network thank-you-very-much.

    One of the security people at another business I work at now periodically turns on the wireless station in his room just to see what might be broadcasting.   I wouldn't be surprised to see him roaming the halls with a laptop open and running...
