MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 28, 2007 -- AirTight Networks™, the leading provider of wireless intrusion prevention solutions, will host a free web-based hacking seminar "Radio Chaos! Wi-Fi Under Siege" on March 6, 2007. Rick Farina, a well respected researcher within the security industry and a Certified Ethical Hacker, will explain attack scenarios and how to get ahead of the game by protecting yourself from next-generation attacks.

AirTight's Wi-Fi hacking webcast series will feature live attack demonstrations and defensive techniques, giving attendees an inside look at the way wireless systems are compromised in the real world and how they may be protected.

Until recently, hackers have focused their malicious efforts on hardwired networks. With the availability of inexpensive RF analysis tools, the prevalence of all-software Wi-Fi device drivers, and wide-spread commercial deployment of wireless networks, hackers are now attacking Wi-Fi. From machine take-over buffer overflow attacks to crippling denial-of-service floods, hackers are successfully exploiting vulnerabilities within wireless networks.
