HONG KONG, Oct. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Krack attack, a recently discovered widespread vulnerability affecting practically everyone and everything that uses Wi-Fi was revealed, allowing hackers to decrypt and potentially look at everything people are doing, and sensitive information such as credit card numbers, passwords, chat messages, emails and photos online. To avoid this attack and secure mobile Wi-Fi connection, users can use a VPN "virtual private network" (VPN) communication network to hide all of network traffic. Hi VPN by Hi Security Lab is also updated to help avoiding mobile phone internet connection security flaws and backdoors that allow hackers to steal your sensitive data.
Normally, WPA2 encryption requires a unique key to encrypt each block of plain text. However, the hack described in the KRACK Attack paper forces certain implementations of WPA2 to reuse the same key combination multiple times.
Alex Hudson, chief technical officer of subscription service Iron said that, the most important lesson from the weakness is that, relying on any one security feature is risky. "You shouldn't be trusting one single point of failure for all your security. Don't rely on just your Wi-Fi, use a VPN or secure connection for anything important."
