Hotel room hackers

Every time you turn around there's another risk that perhaps you had not thought of.  In reading Microsoft's summer security newsletter, I came across this advice for those who use computers while on the road, specifically in hotel rooms.

Who would have thought that hackers would have looked at hotel networks as a way to steal information?  Nevertheless, it's a reminder to follow advice in my book -- be sure to install all security patches sent out by manufacturers like Microsoft, as well as update other security software you might run from companies like Trend Micro or Symantec.
