Somewhere our phones do not have any data plan . That place has a desktop with internet connection . No wifi card builtin and sinceIt is an ALL in one computer we cannot install pci wifi card. We can only have wifi adapter or dongles on a usb port.
How safe is to create a hotspot using a dongle . If i use vpn over wifi to connect to the company's network , is there any chance of vulnerability ?*
Also , keep in mind the wired internet is LAN based and the company is reluctant a bit that using dongle will expose the network to sniffers.
Can they hack through the adhoc network created by the dongle into my our LAN* ?*
What kind of adhoc network is created?
Can it be used to hack the pc only or the LAN can be hacked too ? I do not understand the layers involved.
Please provide suggestions.
