FragAttacks (fragmentation and aggregation attacks) is a collection of new security vulnerabilities that affect on all WiFi devices. Indeed, all WiFi devices, and there are quite a few of them: computers, smartphones, tablets, but also printers, modern microwave ovens, refrigerators, coffee machines, cameras ... you name it.

With FragAttacks user information stolen and can malware installed become.

Fortunately, this cannot be done remotely. The attacker needs to be within range of the WiFi network that the device is connected to. The attacker also needs to have some knowledge of the subject and be aware of the vulnerabilities of the specific WiFi products.

But there are some, those vulnerabilities! And they affect all modern Wi-Fi security protocols, including the latest WPA3 specification. Even low-end firewalls can't do much against FragAttacks.

Our message: keep track of updates!
