Warcelling and the Art of Leeching...
Sunday, July 31, 2005
With the advent of new technology, modders and hackers have come out of the woodwork in masses to ehanace products, tweak them or even just reverse engineering them. Take the PSP for instance. I won't even go into Xbox hacks, and cell phone hacks have been around since the day is long. VOIP is a relatively new idea of using your broadband connection to make phone calls nulling the use of your basic landline. Hell, you can even use Cain and Abel to sniff traffic over VOIP. With WiFi enabled cell phones it will not be too long before you will be able to war drive with your cell phone. Hence, I am dubbing the term "warcelling" for the day that you can whip out your WiFi enabled cell phone, find and access point, connect and make your calls. Imagine netstumbler on your phone or kismet? Scary thought eh?
