Toronto — RCMP warn Wi-Fi users to be aware of ‘Honeypots’

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) are warning the public that there are fake wireless networks that are claiming to be from the RCMP and want to remind you to protect yourself when accessing public Wi-Fi networks.

Wi-Fi networks with names that may appear to represent first responder networks such as police, fire or paramedics and are unsecured are more than likely a Wi-Fi ‘honeypot’ (a social engineering scam similar to phishing).
