Key Reinstallation Attack (KRACK) - What you need to know
You may have heard about the latest security issue to be reported. Here's a few facts to help you through your day.
1) An attacker needs to be in range of the WiFi network you are on, and be using specialised software to break in, and it takes time.
2) If your own device network traffic is encrypted then all an attacker sees once they break in is more encrypted data. They are no further ahead.
3) Major Developers and Manufacturers were first advised back in July '17. Windows updates include fixes for this exploit.
Our Quick! WiFi product has the updates. These were pushed out within days of the vulnerabiluty being found. For routers supplied and managed by us, we are working with manufacturers to obtain their updates and deploy also.
In summary, yep another day another security issue. We can help if you have any questions, just get in touch.
