We found ftp sessions connected to a radio that we couldn't operate 
correctly.  The IPs were originating from France.  In the radio's directory 
we found the first several minutes of a French movie (someone was obviously 
amusing themselves trying to see how large a file they could FTP into the 
radio).  This was way back when the first Motorola radios shipped without 
any password protection at all on Telnet and FTP!

What did we do?  Put all the radios on privates inside our firewall.  What 
should you do?  Figure out a way to block whatever way you're being 
attacked.  What difference does it make whether you know the culprit or not? 
The point is to learn to block it.  Whatever a known culprit can do you're 
better served changing things so that the same exploit cannot be attacked 
again by the known culprit ... or anyone else.

Subject: [WISPA] Attempted hack, what would you do?



Theoretically, if someone attempted to hack into your network via your
router, say at least ten times, what would you do?
If you could identify this culprit via logs and IP addresses, where you had
them dead to rights, what would you do?
