Critical Alert Help

Hey guys,

I recently installed WCS 6.0 in conjuction with a Cisco WLC 5508.  I recently received the following critical alert and I am not sure what this means or what I should do.

IDS 'NetStumbler generic' Signature attack detected on AP 'AccessPOINT' protocol '802.11b/g' on Controller '10.4.4.88'. The Signature description is 'NetStumbler', with precedence '16'. The attacker's mac address is '64:b9:e8:84:e3:45', channel number is '6', and the number of detections is '1'.

That said, I am also curious if anyone knows of a good Administration Guide for learning how to administer WCS along with tips on how and what I should be doing with it.

Thanks for your help,

Josh, CCNA

I wouldn't consider netstumbler an "attack." It doesn't include any features that can decrypt wireless traffic. It can simply scan all the channels. It is not a threat.
