What does this mean?
A very serious weakness in WPA2 was discovered early this week, a protocol that secures all modern protected Wi-Fi networks. An attacker within range of a victim can exploit these weaknesses using key reinstallation attacks (KRACKs). This can be abused to steal sensitive information such as credit card numbers, passwords, chat messages, emails, photos, and so on.
What is BlueScale doing?
BlueScale is actively seeking updates from respective vendors for the Wi-Fi devices deployed in your environment and will address them at the earliest possible opportunity.
Microsoft has already released a patch for windows (CVE-2017-13080) and because of the way BlueScale manages patching we will be monitoring all computers to push this security patch through ASAP.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact us for more information (1300 443 573).
