Top-ranked enterprise wireless networking vendor Cisco has put out a security advisory warning that its WiFi management software platform has vulnerabilities that could potentially make it possible for malicious users to gain access to sensitive information.

Cisco is warning that there exists in its Wireless Control System (WCS) an undocumented hard-coded username and password that could be used to gain access to internal configuration data about access points managed via the WCS. The security issue has been reported in WCS for Linux and Windows 3.2(40) and prior. WCS is Cisco's platform for wireless LAN planning, configuration, RF management, location tracking, intrusion prevention, monitoring, and management.
