A ROMANIAN MAN was arrested in Teulada-Moraira for hacking his neighbours’Wi-Fi networks to download and share content of a paedophilic nature.
The arrest came as part of an international operation led by the Violent Crimes Against Children International Task Force (VCACITF) of the FBI, in which 63 people from 11 countries have been arrested for exchanging files.
To prevent hackers accessing your Wi-Fi network, the police recommend taking the following steps:
- Change or ask for help to change the default configuration of your router. Use an encryption type WPA2-AES with a secure password and limit the number of assignable IP addresses.
- Keep your router’s firmware updated
- Change the name of your access point (SSID)
- Use a firewall as a second line of defence
