Swamppifi Posted May 1, 2014 Share Posted May 1, 2014 (edited) I have been updating my database of mapped nodes, haven't done it lately.. I turn on my wigle setup on my tablet everytime I go somewhere, so I am mapping every day, but haven't had the time to sort it ... so , while sorting the files and updating my database, I came across two access points of interest. one, a gov dept that should know better, considering what they do, and can you guess why they are silly... they are running WEP, other branches of this dept have WPA2 running,but this branch is running WEP... really. just wondering what else isn't secure at that branch. two I came across a ssid that had a name followed by a dash, then a 15 character string.. no...they couldn't be... not that silly, could they..... so I went and checked it last night. tried to connect with the string, nope, no luck... so I tried the string backwards, oh no.... it connected.... they included their 15 character passphase backwards into their ssid.... no matter how much the tech companies tighten security, if the weakest link, (people) want to be lazy, then security will always be comprimised....
