RE: Wifi hot spots - 'not secure'

Hi Chris I've just raised the same question on another list, having not seen the programme. But I note from the write-up (http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/watchdog/2009/10/wifi_hot_spots_not_secure.h tml) that they seem to regard "VPNs" as a user solution to whatever the problem is. That seems to support your feeling that it might be lack of SSL that's a problem, but then it seems a bit mean to beat up the wifi provider when it's actually the webmail provider that's at fault...
