Security by ignorance

I just checked Bruce Schneier's blog and he wrote on something that I heard late last week and meant to comment on and forgot.

California has just passed a law that requires manufactures of wireless components to put a sticker on the device or have a setup warning that tells the end-user that wireless is insecure by default and also include ways to secure wireless. Here is a link to a more in-depth article on the law.

Maybe if we ask the bad guy hackers to leave our networks alone via a banner they will and we will all be happy.
