THE MAGAZINE

A Site To See

If you are a wireless user, you need to know just how many tools are available to compromise wireless networks. Remote-exploit.org highlights tools such as Hotspotter, which acts like a wireless hotspot so that anyone trying to connect to a legitimate network at, say, Starbucks will attach to the attacker’s access point instead. The tools can be downloaded from the Web site along with detailed tutorials—in some cases, step-by-step Flash presentations that walk users through programs that break wireless encryption protocols or that can crack passwords. The need for information on how wireless networks can be vulnerable makes Remote-exploit.org A Site to See. @ Get there via SM Online.
