Access Point detection

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Detects Wireless APs

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is a Wireless Access Point.

You should ensure that the proper physical and logical controls exist
around the AP. A misconfigured access point may permit a possible hacker 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.
