Compromised Network


I have some major issues with unexplained devices showing up as wireless connections. These devices show up as being Cisco devices when i trace the mac. Not sure what else to say other than it has to be someone trying to access my machines remotely. Thanks

How and where are you seeing these devices as wireless connections?


Is ISE - Identity Services Engine being used on your network?


Bug CSCud20033 describes a scenario where ISE profiles ip phones and workstations as Access points.



Thank you for the reply.

I am 100% sure my network has been or is compromised. I am not sure about ISE, but will look into the info by "Bug".

I am getting my info from some "Nirsoft" apps. Then doing MAC lookups. It seems someone has created ways to gain access via older versions "Microsoft Server". There is much more to the issue but do not know where to start explaining. I have only tried to use my machines as personal home computers. They all seem to be getting re-configured as "Enterprise" or "Client" machines even after a clean re-install of Windows 7 using a purchased disk with legal keys. I wish I could give better info but really do not know how.
