"Computer users warned to secure wireless networks"

This was on CTV'S front page today.

Computer users are being warned to secure their wireless computer networks after six police officers descended on an Orleans couple's residence searching for evidence they were downloading child pornography.
Det. Dan LaHaise of the Hi-Tech Crime Unit says unsecured networks are commonly used for committing criminal acts.

"Not just child porn, I'm talking about fraud, even hacking," LaHaise told CTV News.

LaHaise says the culprit who used the Krueger's wireless network likely lives in the neighbourhood.
Let's see, unsecured networks used for committing fraud by locals from the neighbourhood? In Canada? Quelle surprise.
