The attack works against all modern protected Wi-Fi networks." The U. Computer Emergency Response Team issued a Sunday alert about the threat of key reinstallation attacks against WPA2.
"US-CERT has become aware of several key management vulnerabilities in the 4-way handshake of the Wi-Fi Protected Access II (WPA2) security protocol," US-CERT's alert reads.
"So, you're not suddenly vulnerable to everyone on the internet," he says.
"Devices with embedded Wi Fi for secondary functional purposes, like TVs and baby monitors, are unlikely to get proper updates."Attackers can use this novel attack technique to read information that was previously assumed to be safely encrypted," the researcher explains."This can be abused to steal sensitive information such as credit card numbers, passwords, chat messages, emails, photos and so on."Therefore, any correct implementation of WPA2 is likely affected.To prevent the attack, users must update affected products as soon as security updates become available.
