StorefrontBackTalk’s Evan Schuman writes about a serious hole in an airport wireless network that could allow people to reroute luggage.

Oops… More reasons to carry-on.

As it relates to PCI, VeriSign has extensive experience in the travel industry and has dealt with some of the challenges that airlines have. Like a few other industries, it is very unique in its constraints around compliance and security. For instance, something you may not know is that the airports typically own all of the networking and computing equipment used by their tenants. So unlike most companies that have control over the chain of systems that deal with sensitive data, airlines may be forced to start off with a lack of control at the front lines.

Hopefully, this incident will be a reality check for airports.
