WiFi Password crack just got easier and faster :(

A new way to crack WiFi (802.11i/p/q/r wireless) networks was discovered and published yesterday, August 6, 2018: https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/08/06/wpa2_wifi_pmkid_hashcat/

This time a single EAPOL frame is required (previously four). The attacker "sniffs" all the WiFi packets (just like WifiWall does) and uses the EAPOL frame information to crack the WiFi's WPA2/WPA password. Once the hack is accomplished, all WiFi traffic is exposed to the attacker. The attacker can also establish a Man-in-the-middle attack, install ransomware and malware on the WiFi stations, etc.

The attack was discovered accidentally by a team that was looking for ways to attack the new WPA3 protocol, which is more secure than WPA2.

To migrate all WiFi networks to a more secure WPA3, we need to upgrade every public and private WiFi Access Point and every Station (Smartphone, Laptop, tablet, WiFi Camera, etc.). This process will take a few years and meanwhile, the current WiFi generation is highly vulnerable.  

WifiWall is designed to close the gap in for the current WiFi Networks providing adequate security level even before WPA3 is publicly available.

That's it for today.  

WifiWall Team.
