Paying For Wireless Port Scans

Paying for port scans? You might be if you are connecting to the net via a wireless GPRS network that bills by bandwidth usage. It's bad enough GPRS network infrastructures are full of holes - to make customers pay for traffic because the service provider has not had the decency to install a firewall between the net and the wireless infrastructure is irresponsible.

Wired attacks have alread migrated to the wireless world. If a journalist can tell, shouldn't a the service provider be able to tell too?
