What happens when you don't secure you WiFi Network?

Lowe's, one of those big ol' home improvement warehouse stores that (rumor has it) is going to built next to the other big ol' home improvement warehouse store here in Bend, fell victim to one poor IT management. Granted, the guy who broke into their WiFi network did the wrongdoing, but Lowes needs to keep on top of a mission-critical system like that just a wee-bit better -- they left it wide open for him to screen for credit card numbers, and do the damage he did.
