Geeky Warning

As recently revealed at the Black Hat hacker conference in Las Vegas, if you use public wifi to access your email and social networking sites, then your login information is at risk of being grabbed from the cookies sent back from the sites you're logging into.

So basically, unless you REALLY have to, don't use wifi hotspots for anything that involves you having to login. And if you have to, change your login details from somewhere secure as soon as possible afterwards.

Let's be safe out there.
