Room for Improvement

I dropped a laptop off a one of my clients office today. I went in to set up the Wireless card and get the email working properly. I popped the wireless card in and poof 2 unsecured networks popped up in the list. If that was not bad enough, both of these networks belonged to the company and both were named for that company. The good part of this is I now get to write up a nice proposal to try to get the company as a client. Business Wireless (unless they run open wireless to establish a VPN) should at the minimum be running WPA PSK, then the exposure is limited to employees and not anyone who happens to walk by.
