    Default All modern encrypted Wifi networks can now be hacked !!!

    While this is a Wifi flaw and therefore affects ALL OPERATING SYSTEMS, our Admin will be happy to find out that the Wifi clients used on Linux based systems
    are more easier compromised in the latest updates e.g. from Android 6.0 on.


    This allows man in the middle attacks that can happen on any wifi connection, where not only data is stolen but can also be injected e.g ransomware anywhere, even onto websites.

    This ransom/malware would then still be OS specific though.

    From what I understand they'd have to be sitting out the front of your house with a laptop though.
    I don't think it's reason to panic.

    Latest windows patches have already fixed it.
    Android and Linux are still vulnerable.

    Thanks for that Hoe. I haven't actually had a look at it yet. My first reaction is that there are not too many routers, access points and the like running Windows. In fact, I don't know of any. Most seem to actually run some sort of Linux based OS. As for phones, forget Windows. Hardly anyone runs it. Android is still not patched. Don't know about IOS, but it is unix based. Hopefully there will be a lot of updates coming out soon.

    It doesnt make me any happier, it just doesnt surprise me.

    No system is "super unhackable" and thats what far too many people sprout about Linux.

    I am a realist, I leave it to others to dream
