The Super Bowl and Wireless Security

For all you Super Bowl fans tomorrow -- and that means just about everybody in the US -- this is a great story from CIO magazine about wireless security at the big game.

Funny thing until I read this article, I didn't realize how many wireless devices there are at the game. In fact, I didn't realize either, how many things can go around and how many opportunities there were for virtual mayhem and mischief.

Besides football web sites, like the one compromised last year, wireless devices are used for coaches to communicate. Besides a possible Denial of Service (DoS) attack, there's also the possibility for manipulating game results, affecting millions of dollars in wagers and bets.
