Jersey City, New Jersey (PressExposure) October 27, 2009 -- People who use wireless networks in coffee shops and hotels are often unaware how easily snoopers can "listen" in on their Internet communications. Using a machine called a sniffer, hackers can intercept wireless transmissions.
If those Internet sessions contain valuable information such as bank account numbers or passwords, the unsuspecting computer user could be in for trouble, including identity theft. To combat the problem of sniffers, Comodo announces that it has made its virtual private network TrustConnect available to the public, free.
With TrustConnect, owners of mobile devices can connect them to public wi-fi networks, creating a secure tunnel to the Internet. Comodo charges $49.99/year for the ad-free version of TrustConnect; the free version is enhanced with advertisements.
