You connect to it, they gather information from your connection request, port scan, targeted vulnerability scan & try to deploy payloads to your machine e.g. launch your web browser to "authenticate" which is typical of Public WiFi access.

Some are more passive e.g. hijack DNS - serve what appears to be an internet connection but also serve targeted browser exploits and key log all info.

They wouldn't get much from me.

 

So far, I have never had a problem with open wi-fi.

That isn't a password...

 

There is a difference between needing the name (SSID) or password (WEP/WPA/WPA2/etc)

yep, they can just sniff your traffic. log into a site not using https,and if your username, password gets sent in cleartext (cough*), then the perp can try to log into your email, can steal some secret stuff, bank info,steal naked pictures :) ...

What they want is some combo like 1F:5B:0U:2J:N9:H8

 

Just a made up example.

 

My ext. wifi antenna/software can pick this code up.
