For what its worth, a good starting point other then auto applying patches/windows updates, is changing the default password for your router. Leaving it as the default password is asking for trouble.

comment Trying to keep high school students out of the Wi-Fi network
If you install cain and abel on a windows box, you can have it dump your wireless keys, even if using strong security. If its one key for the entire network, and teachers are leaving their computer open, this is a trivial way to get the latest key. Futhermore, even if the computer is locked, using something like "the rubber ducky usb" can compromise a system the minute a teacher turns their back on it. You have to assume the teachers systems are comprimised. Most of them probably are. Whatever you do, build your plan with that in mind, because you DO have compromised machines on your network.

comment How can I know that developers will be ethical and not record my password in plaintext
an alternative to having a seperate password for each site is to have a handful of passwords that you use, and switch between depending on the level of security of a site and how much you trust it. I.E. one password for your email (which controls password resets) one for your banking institutes, and another for all the crappy websites (forums/gaming sites, sites that force you to make an account, etc). just like you have a spam email (or you should), you should have a spam password.

comment JavaScript Injection using Man in the Middle Attack
Even if you were on a secure hotspot, if you are visiting a page with an insecure connection (Http) anybody thats sniffing can read what you are sending to the router, without having to do any manipulation, as its sent in plaintext.

comment Don't understand how my mum's Gmail account was hacked
You will want to change that password everywhere its used. If she shared that password on a banking website, you may want to monitor the activity closely as well. You don't need to download anything for your computer to be comprimised. You just have to visit a malicious website. May this be a lesson to her not to click a link if she doesnt know what it is.

comment DDoS - Impossible to stop?
Are not DDOS attacks simply the result of a barrage of requests from the same computers (be it thousands or hundreds of thousands). Sure you can't stop the initial onslaught, but if you can identify and block the IP's that are making repeated, bot like requests couldnt you stop a simple attack (where IP's are not changing every request)?
