War driving

The practice of driving around to find unsecured wireless networks. The term was coined by Pete Shipley by analogy to war dialing. The advent of ubiquitous 802.11 networks with minimal or low security in the early 2000s allows hackers to gain access to internal networks simply by searching for them with inexpensive laptop set-ups.

War driving may be considered as the dark side of community networking, in which people figure out how to private wireless networks into nonconsensual community networks.
