2. The Scary World of Wireless

While most vendors have provided patches and workarounds to mitigate this security issue, I wanted to expand on wireless security overall.  As a quick background, I have been in wireless for over 10 years and have seen lots of security methods come and go. I have dealt with network engineers that have told me they need to have complete security for the wireless, to which my response is “use a patch cord.” The thing to remember is that wireless is easy to attack, since the attacker does not need to be inside the facility, just within range of the wireless signal to perform the attack.
