Stay safe on line


Every day that goes by we read of another security breach. Although it is our individual responsibility to stay, as far as we can, safe on-line, corporations that make money from our internet activity have a duty to design privacy solutions that work for us all.

Wi-fi security flaw ‘puts devices at risk of hacks’

The wi-fi connections of businesses and homes around the world are at risk, according to researchers who have revealed a major flaw dubbed Krack.

Wi-Fi Data Security

It concerns an authentication system which is widely used to secure wireless connections.

Experts said it could leave “the majority” of connections at risk until they are patched.

The researchers added the attack method was “exceptionally devastating” for Android 6.0.

A Google spokesperson said: “We’re aware of the issue, and we will be patching any affected devices in the coming weeks.”

The US Computer Emergency Readiness Team (Cert) has issued a warning on the flaw.

“US-Cert has become aware of several key management vulnerabilities in the four-way handshake of wi-fi protected access II (WPA2) security protocol,” it said.

“Most or all correct implementations of the standard will be affected.”

For a more detailed look at this vulnerability have a look at Krack’s Website
