According to a new survey commissioned by the Wi-Fi Alliance, 32 percent of respondents admit to logging into their neighbor's unencrypted Wi-Fi at least once.
In 2008, the last time the group did the poll, the number was 18 percent.
Says Kelly Davis-Felner, marketing director at the Wi-Fi Alliance (via USAT):
The reality is that many consumers have not taken the steps to protect themselves.
With Firesheep, almost anyone can effectively hack into your Facebook, Twitter and other accounts. Almost anyone has the skill to use Firesheep to be a nosy neighbor."
