Finding unsecured wireless access points
AAA Electronics has multiple access points in their stores for their wireless point-of-sale and mobile devices the sales team uses.
War-driving hackers found an unsecured wireless connection in the AAA Electronics network. Hackers were able to connect to the network and install a program for stealing personal data.
The network administrator already monitors unknown applications using FortiAnalyzer alerts and was informed an unauthorized program had been installed. Following an investigation, the administrator determined the program secured a wireless access point. The administrator now wants to determine if any of the other AAA Electronics stores has insecure access points.
To find information on unsecured wireless access points:
- If using ADOMs, ensure that you are in the correct ADOM.
- Go to FortiView > WiFi > Rogue APs to view the list of unsecured wireless or rogue access points.
