Your wifi not safe anymore and a breeding ground for hackers now

wifi not safe

Wifi not safe and it has been discovered just recently. The protocol which takes care of the security of wifi and protects you from unwanted eavesdropping is vulnerable. This was discovered in a research recently concluded. Earlier in 2003 when the WEP was discovered vulnerable the WPA 2 protocol was launched which after research has been established that it is also susceptible to hacking and intrusion.

The details of the security exploit were released on the respected website. If you are interested to explore this in detail then head to the website for more detailed insights about the vulnerability. The extent of the problem is that almost all routers will be affected. However, any solution or fix for this issue will not come easy. Some of the routers will provide a software update, but home users will not know how to go about this. This will leave millions of home users exposed and vulnerable to the attack by hackers.

According to a statement by the WiFi Alliance “This issue can be resolved through straightforward software updates, and the Wi-Fi industry, including major platform providers, has already started deploying patches to Wi-Fi users.”

Wifi not safe is not a good situation to be in. We recommend that you should get in touch with your tech support and either get the patch updated or look for alternative routers which have already taken care of this issue. We wish you safe surfing!
