Well as it tends to be, when something is scrutinized for long enough and with enough depth flaws will be uncovered. This time the victim is WPA2 – the strongest protection for your Wi-fi network which is standardized.


Quote:
The upside is that the attack is limited to people who can genuinely authenticate to the network first, the downside that means large organizations using WPA2 in trouble – as generally most damage comes from the inside.

It’s also something to think about when connecting to ISP/public Wi-fi hotspots using WPA2 encryption.


Kind regards,
Droope

The attack on WPA 2 is not a style of brute force attack is a man in the middle attack.This means that someone is able to intercept the traffic that goes to another party, even if the traffic is encrypted with WPA 2.The breach is more of a work around than actually cracking the system but that is enough for it to be effective.
