Q

Access points on the Web

Is there a way I can find out whether or not my company's wireless access points are posted as "hotspots" on the Internet so that malicious users can have a leg up on attacking our network?
There is a website called the Wireless Geographic Logging Engine that allows you to enter your GPS coordinates, MAC address, or SSID to see if there are any entries for your company or equipment. Check it out -- you might be surprised!
