cbdfree, free of authentication

cbdfree is a free Wi-Fi service given by Wellington City Council for the city habitants. It is a massive project which covers the golden mile, and perhaps a particular radius of the city bounds. Up to a few months back, the cbdfree has a typical public wi-fi make up where by you connect to the Wi-Fi hotspot/AP, cbdfree and you are re-directed to a login page. You then, accept the terms of use and you get to use it for a given time and you click ads to continue usage.

Today, I realised that this was not the case, i just connected to the AP and i did not have to do any form of term and conditions agreement, and voila i am surfing the internet. Wellington City Council has to review this as some bad guy might harvest information through an open network and compromise all users of the free service.
