Do You Have A Krack in Your Wifi?

The latest dent in network security is the recent announcement that hackers have figured out a way to breach Wi-Fi connections on almost every single Wi-Fi enabled device. The Krack attack is a major blow to mobile security, but the good news is that iOS and Windows are not vulnerable because of the way Apple and Microsoft implement the security handshake. If you’re an unlucky Android or Linux user however, you are vulnerable.  What it all boils down to is that millions of devices are affected, including embedded devices (otherwise known as the Internet of Things). To protect yourself you need to research all of your wi-fi devices and confirm if they are on the attack list. If they are make sure to download the most recent patch, or immediately take them out of service.

Of course, you can probably tell this can be a labor-intensive process. If it’s too much to handle you can always drop us a line for assistance or advice.
