Verizon hotspot and microarchitectural incontinence



On an Amtrak train, my laptop connected to somebody else’s hotspot before connecting to mine.  It even offered an automatic connection, which it should not do if I’ve never supplied a correct pw.  A flaw in Verizon software?  In Windows 10 security? 

Train was at a station, might have been someone’s house near the tracks. Maybe they didn’t set a pw?

No, I do not hack.

Some “microarchitetural incontinence”, as Daniel Gruss would say.
