Re: WiFi routers
This has still not changed in terms of Wifi security, indeed most logins are never modified by users... That's scary!

AP Proximity
Physical proximity of the wireless AP is not always required to exploit a client's system. Have you ever observed over Airodump or by other means that when an SSID is stored in their system, it constantly broadcasts all of their recently connected networks? This information can be useful in coordinating an attack utilizing a rogue access point and even the user's whereabouts. Maybe WPA2 TKIP PSK AES is proven to be weak in nature as is since there are also well constructed rainbow tables available though massive in size. Key requirements are only between 8 and 63 characters. But have WAP venders really even bothered to address the issue and severely flawed WPS (Wifi Protected Setup) which in most cases is unknowingly enabled by default? No they haven't. Some firmware's WPS can be exploited even when disabled. I haven't even mentioned covert wireless channels... WPA2 needs to me scratched completely.

WiFi routers
I wonder how many routers in small homes and businesses have the admin password set to something unique other than default values --- which can be found on the web very easily.  I used to drive around my town with Netstumbler and years ago most of them were WIDE OPEN anyway.
