Imagine the police busting through your door and turning your computers inside out searching for the worst of the worst images of child sexual abuse. You're innocent, but they have a trail of evidence leading to your computer. It's not a hypothetical situation.
Martin Cane, a 35-year-old in East Yorkshire, England, was arrested for downloading child pornography, but only after his neighbor's house was raided by police. Cane had been using his neighbor's Wi-Fi after hijacking the neighbor's old passwords for his router.
