Your data doesn't usually pass through any computers between yours and the final destination. Just routers.Only computers that share bandwidth on your LAN can pose a threat. Nowadays, that means an unsecured Wi-Fi network. Yep.And just sharing your network isn't enough, they need to create a fake server and fool your computer into going to that server which then captures your data. Manually setting DNS as I suggested above will eliminate the easiest way someone can fool your machine into going to a bogus server. Another obvious way to take advantage would be to create a typo based domain that attacks specific sites.
