Wi-Fi security is wide open to hackers

A flaw in the WPA2 protocol

[By MIT Technology Review]

Researchers have discovered a serious flaw in the WPA2 protocol that secures almost every modern Wi-Fi network. The vulnerability could allow hackers to inject malware into websites, or spy on people by reading information that was previously assumed to be encrypted.

The researchers say that “any correct implementation of WPA2 is likely affected,” with Android, Apple, and Windows software all said to be vulnerable. Security updates should fix the issue—when they’re ready to install.
