Bluetooth "Sniper Rifle" Tested at Library Tower

Bluetooth "Sniper Rifle" Tested at Library Tower :: :: LOS ANGELES SPEAKS

This story comes with a tip that a law firm a few hundred yards from my house have given all their attorneys and staff Blackberries.

I have installed wireless networks (802.11b) in law firms, but I made sure they had WEP turned on. As I set here at my desk I can see at least one other wireless network labeled "law frim" with no WEP protection.

In light of HIPPA and common sense one would hope there would be a best practices document out there to give these folks some help securing their wireless networks. A simple Google search turns up some good resources.
