AOL still has something worth hacking??!1 isn't it just an old packard bell computer running in some unemployed guy's mom's basement?

I'll admit I was wondering how it was actually sniffing out the kiddie pr0n, it seemed a tad magical. But at least they can use it to see what network a suspect is working off/on.

But yeah, that's what sniffers are for.

Actually it's hilarious because it's just a signal strength tester. There's nothing about it that makes it "find" child porn. it just finds wi-fi connections. The article and the comments are fantastically uninformed.

Likely scenario: Cops log in to poorly/un-secured wi-fi, snoop some un-encrypted traffic, see child porn, then hunt down the wi-fi router with that SSID and all clients connected to it.

Nothing special about the device, cops are just catching up with circa 1999 technology.

And as for the mindless commentators on that site crying about privacy, SECURE YOUR WI-FI! You're broadcasting stuff over the air, anyone can pick it up.

That child-porn WiFi device is awesome. The bastards are fast running out of options.
