Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Typhoid adware is a new potential type of computer security threat identified by researchers from the University of Calgary which does not require the affected computer to have adware installed in order to display advertisements on this computer. The researchers said that the threat was not yet observed, but described its mechanism and potential countermeasures. The environment for the threat to work is an area of non-encrypted wireless connection, such as a wireless internet cafe or other WiFi hotspots. Typhoid adware would trick a laptop to recognize it as the wireless provider and inserts itself into the route of the wireless connection between the computer and the actual provider.
