Cisco issues variety of security warnings on wireless gear


Cisco warned of a variety of vulnerabilities – from letting attackers issue DDOS attack to making devices unexpectedly reload — in some of its wireless access point and LAN gear.

The only critical alert came for vulnerability in Cisco Wave 2 Aironet 1830 Series and Cisco Aironet 1850 Series Access Points.

In those devices, running Cisco Mobility Express Software, a vulnerability could let an unauthenticated, remote attacker take complete control of an affected device, the company stated.
