Beware of "free WiFi" hotspots set up to steal personal information

NBC News tonight reported about the dangers of “Free WiFi” connections offered at various locations in many cities, especially NYC, by criminals to steal personal information.

It looks like another story, related on the Network Neutrality blog March 8, about “getting by on free wifi” would be related.
WiFi spots set up by restaurants, hotels and retailers are safer than the rogue connections.  In an experiment, a man set up about 300 spots in NYC and got thousands of takers.
