I have a very strange situation. I was at a client and we had to use Powerline adapters for a network point.
When I plugged in the powerlines I noticed that another router was broadcasting on his network. Actually then I realized it was his neighbor's router!!
If powerlines manage to travel on the electricity company grid, this is a big security flaw!
I was in his neighbor's network obviously!
Does any expert know if this might happen?
To be honest I immediately suspected that his neighbor might be steeling electricity (maybe) from my client.
Any engineer can explain this from a technical side of view?
Thanks in advance!
