[Ars] Severe flaw in WPA2 protocol leaves Wi-Fi traffic open to eavesdropping - Page 4

All in all though, this seems like an addressable issue.

No software or standard (security or otherwise) is perfect. This flaw is also a bit limited as it requires physical access/proximity, not impossible but much more likely to be used against a mobile device. Hopefully router vendors jump on fixing this and pass it down to many models.

yeh most devices wont even see a patch especially legacy out of production stuff that is still operating. companies would just make you buy a new devices to replace them.

Is that even legal?

beats me but i think their obligations ends when they classify something as EOL.

they would patch the current line up and that is that.

dont expect the billion other chinese wireless products out there along with small time IOT and various wifi connected smart devices to have updates IMO especially those failed kickfarted stuff.

dont expect apple to patch an iphone3G or microsoft to patch earlier versions of windows

as far as law goes, its probably up to individual countries to enforce them

Yup.
Most of my home is wired.
Only my phone and tablet are wireless, and I don't use anything important with them.

Hackers could use your phone's or tablet's Wi-Fi connection to get into your wired network.

Microsoft released a patch for it (for Win 7 or newer) before this thread was even created.... biggrin.gifthumb.gif

Seriously folks, your "expectation to privacy" as the legal term goes shouldn't exist as far as the internet is concerned. It is inherently not a private space.
They never were but at least are harder physically to get access to, where as with WiFi you can be miles miles away with a directional antenna such as yagi, and you don't even have to buy this antenna you can build it at home.
Sure you can sometimes wireless spy on wired connections as well but good luck with that.

Most of these companies' support plans are, "just buy the new version."

TP Link and Archer are both home-game level hardware, don’t expect it. In fact, don’t expect a patch on older home-use hardware.

My statement was directed at the enterprise, carrier level, where the major vendors play. Think Motorola, Ruckus, Cambain, Arris, etc.

Edit: Others like Ubiquiti and Mikrotik.


Newer home routers should see a patch, but again, those on home level stuff more than a couple of years? Doubt a patch happens.

Netgear released a new firmware version for this as well, but I can only speak for the R6300v2 - the one I own, not sure about their other models....
