Ethernet VPN More Protected Than Wi-Fi WPA2 Protocol

Ethernet VPN More Protected Than Wi-Fi WPA2 Protocol



Ethernet VPN More Protected Than Wi-Fi WPA2 Protocol - The WPA2 protocol used in Wi-Fi network are the standards which is created by Wi-Fi Alliance industry group that promote interoperability and security for the wireless industry. According to a recent report by US Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US CERT), anyone using WPA 2 protocol is probably compromised. The users are advised to use a wired ethernet or VPN to protect their sensitive data stored on computer.


According to US CERT – Users are advised to update Wi-Fi device as soon as companies start rolling out security patches. The warning of risk of data hacking and privacy breach was enforced by US government. This Wi-Fi issue is popularly known as KRACK, stands for Key Reinstallation Attacks. The user may use VPN or ethernet network for secure browsing. The user should encrypt data and remain from KRACK hack by using Virtual Private Network (VPN) or Ethernet Network.


The KRACK may affects operating systems and devices i.e. Android, Apple, Windows, MediaTek etc. The report says "If initial reports are accurate that encryption bypass exploits are easy and reliable in the WPA2 protocol, it's likely attackers will be able to eavesdrop on nearby Wi-Fi traffic as it passes between computers and access points". The KRACK flaw was discovered by Guardian Security Expert Mathy Vanhoef from Belgian University KU Leuven. He discovered the flaw in the wireless security protocol WPA2.


According to Guardian Security Expert Mathy Vanhoef – "This can be abused to steal sensitive information such as credit card numbers, passwords, chat messages, emails, photos, and so on. The attack works against all modern protected Wi-Fi networks. Depending on the network configuration, it is also possible to inject and manipulate data. For example, an attacker might be able to inject ransomware or other malware into websites".
