What Is This WPATubez?
I found this believe-it-or-not secure network on my Toshiba laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium and had no idea what is was or how it got there. After doing some looking around, I found out this seems to be an issue with a lot of Toshiba laptops with 7 Home Premium, and some seem to believe it's somehow connected to Best Buy. Weird, huh? Anyway, there's a rumor that this is Best Buy's own secure network---and it IS secure with a password---but no one knows much else. It doesn't seem to be a virus, Trojan or any other sort of malware, and my rootkit scan showed nothing. The name of the network is WPAtubez and the password is WorldDominate. Anybody know about this? I removed it from my laptop and haven't had any issues. Lots of opinions about this but no real facts, it seems.

Yes, it does appear to be the BestBuy Wi-Fi network used in many stores. No harm done if you removed it.
