Tech Tip Tuesday - KRACK Attack
The latest vulnerability to sport it’s own logo and website is key reinstallation attacks (KRACKs). The attack breaks the security of the WPA2 wireless security protocol. What does this mean? If you configured your home or work wireless connection with WPA2 to keep nosey neighbors off your network, you need to reconsider the safety or confidentiality of your network. Patches are available for some of the devices so be sure to update your wireless routers and access points. This attack does require someone to be close enough to your house to connect, so should be weary of people lingering outside your house with a laptop but that’s probably just good advice in general. #CyberAware https://securingthehuman.sans.org/blog/2017/10/16/28748 If you have a Tech Tip you want to share, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get them out next #TechTipTuesday.
