Wireless Access Point Detection

Info Nessus Plugin ID 11026

Synopsis

The remote host is a wireless access point.

Description

Nessus has determined that the remote host is a wireless access point
(AP).

Ensure that proper physical and logical controls are in place for its
use. A misconfigured access point may allow an attacker to gain access
to an internal network without being physically present on the
premises. If the access point is using an 'off-the-shelf'
configuration (such as 40 or 104 bit WEP encryption), the data being
passed through the access point may be vulnerable to hijacking or
sniffing.
