'Evil twin' fear for wireless net

Evil Twin is a technique of stealing data from people who login to free-access wireless networks by making a fake wireless network and overpowering the safe one. This is done by creating a free-access wireless network with the same name as the safe one and then boosting the signal of fake one so that the user will believe that they are logging into the safe one. Then all data (including logged passwords and creditcard numbers) can be logged in the data stream and later sorted out.
