Krack endangers all Wi-Fi routers. What solutions do we have?


KRACK is a vulnerability discovered in the WPA2 protocol, to which all routers in the world are vulnerable.

How does KRACK work?

The attacker exploiting the KRACK vulnerability interferes between the router and the client (phone, laptop, etc.), clones the router, with the same MAC address, but switches to another channel. After logging in for authentication, the fake router gets the real router and tells the client to change the channel, and connects to the clone router, believing that everything went well.
It is a MitM attack, which clings to this "escape" from the WPA2 protocol.

What data can steal the attacker who used KRACK?

Any data that circulates between you and the Internet can be intercepted.

Can my data be stolen from my PC?

Not directly, but if you have, for example, some pictures you upload to Facebook, they can be intercepted.

Can you steal bank card data with KRACK?

Yes, absolutely, if you use the online payment card. If you do not use the card and keep it in your wallet, you obviously can not steal the data on it.

How do we avoid the KRACK attack?

We have three or four measures that we can apply, but can not provide us with a 100% safety, except 3.

1. Update your phone, tablet, laptop, desktop.
2. Update to the router if available (latest firmware)
3. Use only mobile internet for online payments and Facebook login, Whatsapp, email, etc.
4. Use the cable connection as many times as possible

  1. If you hide ssid is not good ?!

  2. I wonder how long the mobile networks will be broken?

    • With somewhat higher costs and mobile networks being vulnerable, it is a little more difficult and expensive, but not impossible.
      The attacker's motivation, the weight of the target, etc., is also important here.

    A good article but too little documented. "Middle Man"

  4. It's basically a weakness, not a bug. The attacker must be in close proximity to the network to actually attack. Even then he needed a target victim and knew about the victim's device.

    Cristi have been watching you for some time, but lately I've been avoiding going to your site because you've been mistaken for a lot of stuff. This time I saw the tutorial on youtube (subscribed)
    Returning to the subject I would have recommended the following:
    Windows Update (good to do)
    Update wifi network card driver, all boards have already received driver update (important)
    Update Phone (where this permits) ex: Huawei has received the full range
    Update firmware wifi router (big brands already on the official website) check this list:
    Update wifi surveillance cameras, wifi light bulbs etc (important!)

    And how can you forget the most important thing? VPN free or Paid ??? practically you scared people to use their wifi, both personally and office. Genre: Move to mobile data. wow!
    A lot of success, I appreciate your work, BTW!

  6. So what makes you think somebody else has not broken the phone networks. Look at the DNA that the software bought, how to do it. As far as I understand Imac, actually apple products are not affected by krack.

  7. 1. In a tutorial from July this year, you presented us the solution to "jump" over the router of the service provider.
    If we stay with our router "to hide" behind the provider's router, do we have any advantage in terms of network security? Even if they are not of the best quality, can those GPONs help us as a first barrier (at least on the cable side, if not on Wi Fi)?
    2. Do security updates receive all versions of Andoid (…, Lolipop, Marshmallow,…) or just some of them?

  8. hello Cristi. an off topic question… can I connect an external hard drive to the tv and the pc at the same time? a y cable or other variant? ms in advance

    "Hello there,
    As you may have heard, the latest KRACK vulnerability made public this week has compromised the security of WPA2, the most popular and widespread Wi-Fi encryption standard.

    What implications does that have for you? In short, no Wi-Fi network in the world can be considered secure anymore, and billions of people are affected by this vulnerability, including you. A hacker can now decrypt your Wi-Fi traffic, and, in many cases, intercept your personal data.

    That was the bad news. The good news is that your trusty Hotspot Shield VPN app provides reliable protection against this vulnerability for any device it is installed on. Please make sure you have Hotspot Shield installed on all Wi-Fi enabled devices that you have switched on at all times, at home or on the go. You can find the latest version of Hotspot Shield apps for iOS, Android, Windows and Mac here.

    To learn more about the latest KRACK vulnerability and the steps you can take to protect your information from it, please see this article. If you need any help installing Hotspot Shield on any of your devices, please contact our dedicated customer support team at [email protected].

    Your security and privacy are our absolute priority, and we have your back against KRACK and other cyber threats that are trying to compromise your data.

    Sincerely yours,
    The AnchorFree Team"
