SubjKRACK: Key Reinstallation Attack

WPA2 Security Flaw Puts Almost Every Wi-Fi Device at Risk of Hijack,

==== хрум ====
A security protocol at the heart of most modern Wi-Fi devices, including
computers, phones, and routers, has been broken, putting almost every
wireless-enabled device at risk of attack. From a report: The bug, known as
"KRACK" for Key Reinstallation Attack, exposes a fundamental flaw in WPA2, a
common protocol used in securing most modern wireless networks. Mathy Vanhoef,
a computer security academic, who found the flaw, said the weakness lies in the
protocol's four-way handshake, which securely allows new devices with a
pre-shared password to join the network. That weakness can, at its worst, allow
an attacker to decrypt network traffic from a WPA2-enabled device, hijack
connections, and inject content into the traffic stream. In other words:
hackers can eavesdrop on your network traffic. The bug represents a complete
breakdown of the WPA2 protocol, for both personal and enterprise devices --
putting every supported device at risk. "If your device supports Wi-Fi, it is
most likely affected," said Vanhoef, on his website. News of the vulnerability
was later confirmed on Monday by US Homeland Security's cyber-emergency unit
US-CERT, which about two months ago had confidentially warned vendors and
experts of the bug, ZDNet has learned.

Вкратце: найдена критическая ошибка в протоколе WPA2.

Что делать?

Обновления для Linux-систем уже выпущены, для форточек скорее всего выйдут

Точки доступа есть смысл перенести в отдельные VLANы специально для WiFi, и
оттуда пускать только наружу (во внутренние сети только через OpenVPN).

Говнороутеры, которые умеют работать с OpenWRT, есть смысл перевести на эту
систему (и обновить, как только это станет возможно). Остальные говнороутеры
можно переключить в режим точек доступа и применить предыдущую рекомендацию.

Обновления для ведроида ожидаются в начале ноября.
