KRACK attack destroys nearly all Wi-Fi security

A paper by two Belgian researchers has cast more light on the vulnerabilities discovered in the Wi-Fi Protected Access II (WPA2) implementations on most, if not all, wireless networking devices that use the protocol

Story here

This is shaping up to be a big deal for Wi-Fi.
There goes all our Wi-Fi routers

Re: KRACK attack destroys nearly all Wi-Fi security

MS already has a fix, android and Linux not so much. My Erro router has one coming and i'll get over the air auto update....one of the reason I bought the erro.

I really hope the fixes work fv.

I hope that all the businesses and corporates out there, private and government, in whatever country they are, can and will patch all their infrastructure, no matter how old it may be, so that our personal data is not compromised.

I called Erro today, they have a beta out with there beta tester now and if everything is right I'll get it. Yeah this really could be a bad one, here in the US with already have the Echofax deal with 145 million people having all there S.S. numbers and everything else stolen....this just a other one!

Re: KRACK attack destroys nearly all Wi-Fi security

Here's some good news for a change!

Microsoft already has a fix for that severe WiFi security exploit (updated)

Re: KRACK attack destroys nearly all Wi-Fi security

Thanks Zap.
Wow, looks like Android devices are most vulnerable, considering the number of people out there using their phones on public LANs...
So, does this require a router firmware patch as well as a device OS patch?
That wasn't clear to me from the article.

I've got a Linksys WRT 1900 ACS on the latest firmware (July 2017).
Wondering if I should contact them about a patch.

Yes, will need a patch. Once the exploits come out some neighbors will be spying on their neighbors.

But I have heard little about whether its actually patchable.
I assume it would be but they may just put in workarounds until they can figure it out.

Google is working on a patch already, don't know if the patch is going to work on older phones? I heard today the if your using a modified WRT firmware for your router there is a patch out for that now....open source took care of it...Don't have a clue where you can find it?
