Wake-On-LAN security
From: "Hylton Conacher(ZR1HPC)" <hylton () conacher co za>

I am currently on dialup and have the dialup gateway box connected to a switch via a WOL nic. The modem connects to the gateway box with a serial connection.

I am upgrading to ADSL and will have the ADSL initially, directly connected into the switch.

What command or procedure could be used by a hacker coming through my ADSL connection into the switch to wake up machines plugged into the switch that have Wake-On-LAN nics?

How could I prevent the machines from waking up, besides turning off the switch or unplugging the network cable?

Appreciated
Hylton
