The point has recently been raised that this application could potentially be used maliciously to obtain unauthorised access to a Wi-Fi network. If your network password can be discovered with this application and you want to prevent others from accessing your network with dessid, please see

Please remember Eircom's own words: "[a] wireless system can ever (sic) be considered 100% secure." Not just Eircom networks, but any network with WEP encryption and many with WPA can be cracked. The Irish Times has reported that obtaining unauthorised access to a wireless network is a criminal offence in the Republic of Ireland, so please use dessid responsibly.
