WiFi Security Statistics
I know security statistics are hard to find to begin with, and 802.11 networks are new enough to the general populance that those stats are probably even more rare, but I've got to ask anyhow..
Does anyone know of some WiFi security statistics out there?
Can be either stats on unsecured/encrypted APs, attacks performed, volume of attacks... even for specific cities. For example if some War Driving wonks decided to put stats up on hotspots they've found, that would serve my purposes greatly.
Thanks much (again)

Yep - this is exactly the info I've been looking for. One round of positive Antipoints for all!
Where can I find this 2600 article? Do they have them archived on line?

\"If computers are to become smart enough to design their own successors, initiating a process that will lead to God-like omniscience after a number of ever swifter passages from one generation of computers to the next, someone is going to have to write the software that gets the process going, and humans have given absolutely no evidence of being able to write such software.\" -Jaron Lanier
