Program threatens wireless security
Posted: 27-Aug-2001 [Source: Computer User]

[Hackers finding new territory to exploit with the growth in wireless transmissions.]

by Brian Bergstein -- "Airports, schools and hotels might want to look closer at the wireless Internet networks they have been installing as a convenience for the must-stay-connected crowd.

"A new program called AirSnort, released on the Internet this week, lets enterprising hackers easily grab passwords and other sensitive data as they are transmitted through the air -- unless certain precautions are taken.

"There's going to be some major events that will occur, some takedowns, things like that," said Les Owens, a Vienna, Va.-based expert on wireless security. "I would be cautious (on a wireless network in a public place), a lot more cautious than I would be at home."
