Printer as Wlan scanner
« on: March 11, 2011, 06:49:56 PM »
That's why I love working on NeDi! Had a quick look at a HP Officejet with Wlan and I have to say, the SNMP implementation got a lot more interesting! You can even see the Wlan APs near by, which could be (ab)used to detect rogue APs:

SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises. = STRING: "<BSSID ID=\"0x80:b3:x0:xx:xx:xx\" NAME=\"fussanet\"><CAPABILITY VALUE=\"0x0011\"/><CHANNEL NUMBER=\"1\"/><SIGNAL STRENGTH=\"-58\"/></BSSID>"
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises. = STRING: "<BSSID ID=\"0xcc:1e:x7:xx:xx:xx\" NAME=\"NetSe60\"><CAPABILITY VALUE=\"0x0011\"/><CHANNEL NUMBER=\"6\"/><SIGNAL STRENGTH=\"-78\"/></BSSID>"
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises. = STRING: "<BSSID ID=\"0x46:db:xa:xx:xx:xx\" NAME=\"NETGEAR\"><CAPABILITY VALUE=\"0x0011\"/><CHANNEL NUMBER=\"1\"/><SIGNAL STRENGTH=\"-87\"/></BSSID>"
Please consider Other-Invoices on your NeDi installation for an annual contribution, tx!

That is really odd that they would expose that information via SNMP.   Good find!
