James was traveling for his job. The internet card provided by his company was not working and he had an important project due that day. James was in a small town about an hour away from the nearest internet kiosk, so he decided to drive around a nearby suburb to see if he could find a wireless system he could borrow to send out his project. James found a wireless system without a security key and, after parking near the home with the system, uploaded the project. Afterward, just for fun, James peaked into the computer on the wireless system and found, to his dismay, some bank accountsand passwords.
