web - activist showed politicans what it means to became wiretapped

At this conference, activists Gustav Nipe and Elin Andersson set up a honeypot open wi-fi, and labeled it “Open Guest”. About a hundred of the worst surveillance hawks used the honeypot access point during the conference. The activists were logging all so-called “metadata”: which servers were contacted and how. They present their findings in an op-ed in Swedish.
They also note that the people who are responsible for the very security of the country happily use open and unencrypted wi-fi to fetch governmental correspondence, and draw some conclusions from that:


Always "good" to know how well trained the people about a topic or technology are, that are know as "the rule makers" :-(.
Nevertheless, high five for this hack.
