If done correctly this attack becomes a little more persistent continuing to run after you have left the area of the rogue access point. Plus the attacker could grab some if not all of your login credentials (Gmail, Amazon, PayPal, XHamster etc) and if really lucky an active session token for your banking.

The ultimate full English breakfast – have your SAY
Hienz beans, Cumberland sausage really?
IMHO the classic full English breakfast should only be made from ingredients sourced at the local cash & carry and served in the ambiance of a run down 1960's café. Smedley's baked beans stewing in the pot for a week, Ketchup that could strip paint and sausages of such questionable content a tourist from Ankh Morpork would feel at home.

Re: Lead free solder
<Sigh> I do miss that first joint of the day, that heavy sweet aroma with a hint of singed fingers. The gentle hiss of the sponge and distinctive rattle of a Weller soldering iron being thrown the last inch back into the spring holder.

During the happy days when most routers used WEP encryption my personal best for an urban WiFi hack was about 100 meters using a relatively small homemade Yagi antenna and a stock wireless dongle. Though the bandwidth sucked it was no worse than dial-up, plenty enough to get online or pwn the owners box.

Cyberattack on the nation's electricity grid...
Seriously Mr Trump? go read Paul Parfomak's 2014 report "Physical Security of the U.S. Power Grid: High-Voltage Transformer Substations", digital shenanigans are the least of your worries it seems.
Since 2003 at least six transformers are known to have been destroyed by rounds from a common relatively small calibre hunting rifle, the FBI can tell you how many other incidents have not been made public for security reasons.
