    Exclamation Cisco Aironet Access Point vulnerability to RF attack?

    I remember reading awhile back that the Cisco Aironet series of Access point (wireless 802.11 router/access point) was vulnerable to an RF based attack that caused a hard reset of the device. Returning the AP to it's default settings.

    has anyone heard of this? Or is it documented anywhere?
    BTW, Not the SNMP exploit but the RF based reset attack.

    Cheers and TIA,

    I believe that is known as a "Bit-Flip Attack". I would Google it for more information (I can't remember all of the details). In the meantime, go here: http://www.cisco.com/pcgi-bin/Softwa.../wlplanner.cgi to get the latest, patched firmware if you need it.
