Security experts fell for WiFi monitoring

Published onsdag 14 januari 2015 kl 09.21

The youth section of the Pirate Party has revealed that it was able to monitor the Internet traffic of some one hundred participants at the annual Society and Defence conference in Sälen.

Young Pirates president Gustav Nipe tells the newspaper Dagens Nyheter that they set up an open WiFi network called “Open Guest” at the conference, where Sweden’s top politicians, military, and security experts gathered. He says several high officials have used the network to log onto agencies’ e-mail servers, which, without encryption, meant that the traffic could be easily monitored.

“The security policy establishment that is here in Sälen is pushing for more surveillance, but they apparently feel it doesn’t apply to them,” Nipe said to Dagens Nyheter.

He underlined that the action wasn’t aimed at exposing any particular individual, but rather to draw attention to surveillance in general.
