Red-Alert security bypass
|redalert-bypass-security (15089)||Medium Risk|
Red-Alert could allow a remote attacker to bypass the security of a wireless network protected by Red-Alert. Red-Alert does not properly recognize a wireless network with an SSID (Student Services Information Desk) having multiple space characters. A remote attacker could use this vulnerability to launch an attack against the network that could go undetected.
Upgrade to the latest version of Red-Alert firmware, available to Red-Alert customers from the company where Red-Alert was purchased. See References.
