News: Latest Ubiquiti vulnerability info

As many of you are probably aware, a lot of Ubiquiti devices running old firmware are under a new wave of attack taking advantage of an old vulnerability that was fixed a year ago.

In response to this latest wave of problems for some WISPs, Ubiquiti have thoughtfully emailed everyone on their mailing lists with their latest advice, namely:

“In recent days, we’ve seen virus activity taking network devices offline. In most cases, devices are reset to factory defaults. In other cases, devices are still operational, but inaccessible. The virus is using an HTTP/HTTPS exploit that doesn’t require authentication. Simply having a radio with out-of-date firmware and having its HTTP (port 80)/HTTPS (port 443) interface exposed to the Internet is enough to get infected.”

HowTo: Building to Building PTP links using Ubiquiti Airmax products

(This how to also applies to 2.4GHz Ubiquiti Equipment)

We are often asked how to make building to building or ‘point to point’ wireless links. This HowTo explains how to use Ubiquiti Nanostations to make a transparent link.

The first port of call for configuring any Ubiquiti device is to manually change your systems IP address in order to communicate with the Ubiquiti equipment, in this HowTo I will be using 192.168.1.10 as my system IP (note that many Ubiquiti devices are configured on 192.168.1.20 from the manufacturer by default).
