Running Snort On a Linksys Wireless Access Point
I read at Snort.org how Jim Buzbee figured out how to run Snort on his Linksys WAP. This is no joke. The folks at Seattle Wireless discovered the Linksys WRT54G runs Linux kernel 2.4.5. Through a bug they investigated the box thoroughly. They also physically disassembled the box. They learned the web server used to administer the device is mini_httpd. Amazing.
