AirSnare - wireless network intrusion detector

tip from Terry at TerrysComputerTips, May 2006

 

from Clif

I recently read about AirSnare at Terry's Computer Tips. AirSnare can be used on home or business wireless networks (hotspots) to detect connections by unknown or malicious computers. Since both Terry and TechTV recommend it, I'm passing this tip on to you.

 

While I was on vacation recently, I and my wife were able to detect dozens of home wireless networks that were wide open. Many home networks are "unsecured" and anyone passing by can connect to an unsecured network and use it.

 

If you have a home wireless network and you don't know if it's safe from attack, please see this article

Quote from AirSnare website

AirSnare is another tool to add to your Wireless Intrusion Detection Toolbox. AirSnare will alert you to unfriendly MAC addresses on your network and will also alert you to DHCP requests taking place. If AirSnare detects an unfriendly MAC address you have the option of tracking the MAC address's access to IP addresses and ports or by launching Ethereal upon a detection.
