Key Reinstallation Attacks: WPA2 encryption.

Yesterday, October 16, 2017, two Belgian researchers published a proof of concept of a vulnerability in the current implementation of WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access II), rendering all modern networking devices exposed.

Affected Implementations include:

  • Apple OS X 10.9.5
  • Apple MacOS Sierra 10.12
  • Apple iOS 10.3.1
  • Google Android 6.0
