wireless bssid used in geolocation

Post and code up on Attack Vector: Geolocation Using BSSID. Matt finally brings this home at the end with the key question: How do you get someone’s BSSID? And that’s really the key, right? Well, if Javascript can leak that information over the Internet, you have an interesting way to track people down.

I hate how movies geolocate someone using their IP address (if we’re lucky, they even get *that* technical) within seconds. Now this might be a bit more realistic (with some room for error due to proximity or overlapping BSSID names) for people on wireless and leaky equipment. Very interesting!
