The term “war”, which is used in Wardriving, WarChalking etc., was taken from the old days of WarDialing. WarDialing, the hacking practice of phoning up every extension of a phone network until the number associated with a modem is hit upon, has been replaced by WarDriving with the introduction of wireless LANs.
