Hello everyone, I tried posting this in the Beginner's Forum yesterday, but upon closer examination that isn't the right area for it so I'm posting a new thread here. (I'm new to the forum so I don't know if the mods will even post it there.)
When doing a general "Airodump-ng" in my area I see normal traffic except for one router with the following properties:
BSSID = 00:00:00:00:00:00
ESSID = <Length: 0>
Channel = detected on 6 and 11
Power = varies from about -68 to -79 every three seconds.
Beacons = about 23 per second
Data = 1 after two hours of monitoring
I've found two other instances of this with little help as to what it might be:
Now I will admit that what I don't know about WLAN could fill a warehouse, but I've never heard of an "unconfigured AP" that doesn't have a real MAC address and rapidly switches channels. Can anyone help me figure out what this thing is and if I should be concerned about it?
Last month, the video was showing the injection test on the N900. If you watch carefully, you can note that one of the BSSID is 00:00:00:00:00:00. I first thought it was a bug in aircrack-ng but it's not. I was told it's a unconfigured AP. It only sends beacons and jumps on different channels. If you're as curious as me, here is a capture file with just a beacon.
