Hello

I have a rooted att s5 and in my wifi list I seem to have had 2 access points that were fake? Cad005 and Dre tega.

both were wpa2 secured with Mac id's of 000000 by xerox corp (I used wifi analyzer).

I was afraid I was hacked downloaded malware bytes lookout avg no virus or malware. I removed some questionable apps (always from play store. ...anyways after reboot it's gone.

When they were showing no other devices showed them as being access points? They always had th e same fixed signal strength in wifi analyzer

Any ideas?

Maybe. But the signal strength never varied while walking or driving which was kinda wiered. Anyway hasn't recurred since. Thanks

Same thing happened to me
Same thing happened to me with my stock ATT S5 (with the recent OTA - G900AUCU2ANG3). In my case, the access points are legit, but from a town I was in yesterday, 50 miles away. The MAC addresses are all zero and say Xerox in WiFi Analyzer (I suspect Xerox has the OID of zero, but haven't looked it up.)

It will probably clear up with a reboot, but it's strange that old access points that previously had a signal for are still showing up with a -80dB signal in both WiFi Analyzer and in Settings/Wireless.

From an earlier post, it looks like you did the update, too. I wonder if this is a new "feature"?

Ive not had the problem since i reset my phone (wipe). I still use WiFi analyzer and no recurrence. Might it have to do w the wifi driver made by wifi analyzer? Did others affected install that?
