FBI warns of malware installed via hotel Internet connections

If you’re traveling abroad be extra careful when it comes to surfing the web, clicking on pop up windows, and software updates. The FBI has found that laptops using hotel Internet connections are being infected with malware that masquerades as legitimate software updates. Reading between the lines it sounds like foreign agencies are specifically targeting hotel networks where US citizens are known to stay, giving them a higher rate of infection of US targets versus other locations. Be sure to update your computer before you leave for a trip and verify any updates you install while abroad.
