The most prevalent wireless threats
With the prevalence of mobile devices and the increasing use of wireless-aware applications, enterprises need to continually track the threats that they face and take steps to mitigate them. Interesting trends about the nature of wireless threats are emerging, and the WVE database has revealed product defects, user and client behavior, and advancement in attacks and tools as the most prevalent types of submissions thus far. Vulnerabilities exist in all complex networking systems, especially in emerging solutions that support wireless communications. This is particularly true for wireless networking infrastructure and client equipment such as access points (APs), WLAN controllers, and VoIP phones. The database contains a number of product defect entries, including a number on APs suffering from authentication management and denial of service (DoS) vulnerabilities.
