Three Risks associated with Public Wireless less Points can be

(i) Denial of Service. When attacker bombard access point or network with huge number of bogus requests  making network or access point go out of service,

(ii) Data Theft.:-  Hackers may get into network through public wireless access point and steal sensitive data and information by either accessing other computers on network or through analyzing traffic of network.

(iii) Man in Middle attack:- Hacker can use public Wireless access point for launching man in middle attacks.

Other risks. Network reconfiguration or injection attacks are also possible, through Public wireless access points.

Real world example. A Hacker who got connecting to public wireless access point, may access other computers on network and take advantage different vulnerabilities,of network, devices and operating system. it will be very easy for him to scan network and identify different vulnerbilities of network in order to gain unauthrozed access to network.
