Hacking passwords via wi-fi

Well, surprise, surprise, surprise, as the saying goes. One of the interesting demos from
Defcon, the tech security conference, was that wireless internet can have the same problems as cel phones: you don't know who may be listening (or hacking). This was demonstrated by broadcasting the partial password login info of the conference attendees who used the hotel's unsecured wireless network to log on. Oops.
