Definition: Wardriving is the practice of searching for wireless LAN (WLAN) signals within a geographic area. Peter Shipley coined this term. He pioneered the practice of using an automobile, a Global Positioning System, and a mounted antenna to identify unsecured WLANs in neighborhoods.
The term wardriving comes from wardialing, which is the random or sequential dialing of phone numbers to find data lines, the numbers of which are logged in order to facilitate future attempts to hack into the computer on the other end. Wardialing was popular in the 1980s, particularly after the release of the movie WarGames(1983), in which Matthew Broderick played a teenage hacker whose wardialing software taps into an experimental defense computer.
