How KRACK WiFi Hack Impacts Your Privacy

Key Reinstallation Attacks (KRACK) hacks use a vulnerability in WPA2 WiFi encryption to spy on your Internet traffic when connected to WiFi networks. Since most modern WiFi networks use WPA2 encryption the vulnerability spans millions of devices around the world. The problem spans from routers to phones and a wide range of iOT devices. Whether you are connecting to WiFi from your favorite hangout using your iPhone or connecting to a hotel network on your laptop, the KRACK hack puts everyone at risk.

Whack a mole

The news of the KRACK vulnerability broke a few hours ago. You can expect fixes to be released in the days and weeks to come. The problem is a big one since the researchers that discovered KRACK, Mathy Vanhoef of imec-DistriNet, and KU Leuven, found that the security flaw let’s hackers attack all modern WPA2 protected WiFi networks. This means that any device that supports WiFi is very likely impacted by the issue.

The KRACK researchers found that Android, Apple, Windows, Linux, and other platforms are all affected by the attacks. This means that you should be very careful when connected to WiFi networks. In time vendors like Linksys and other router manufacturers will release patches. The attacks go much deeper though since millions (perhaps even billions) of iOT devices are also vulnerable to the attacks. What can you do to protect yourself from the attacks? For now the best answer is to use a VPN like IPVanish.

It helps to understand KRACK a little better to protect yourself. For starters you should assume that all WiFi networks are vulnerable at the moment. The attack requires the hacker to be nearby to intercept your data. The first step to protect yourself is to make sure and install updates on all your devices as soon as they become available. As always, you will want to make sure that any website you log in to or share information on uses SSL encryption. Look for HTTPS in the site address or a lock symbol on most web browsers. The final and best step to protect your privacy is to use a VPN. This will encrypt all of your data as it passes over vulnerable WiFi networks. This is the best solution to protect your privacy until the patches are released.

IPVanish Privacy First Sale

Last week you may have read that the DOJ demanded the data for visitors to an anti-Trump website. This is an unconstitutional invasion of privacy that shines a light on the current political landscape in the United States and beyond. In response the IPVanish team is offering a Privacy First Sale to help protect user’s online privacy. Those new to IPVanish can sign up for a year of unlimited VPN for just $3.25 a month. That’s 50% off the already discounted pricing on 12 months of VPN access.. The sale will be active through Wednesday, August 23rd.

IPVanish Privacy First Sale

IPVanish is a strong supporter of groups that focus on online privacy rights. This certainly includes the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) which will receive a portion of the proceeds for the sale. The EFF was founded in 1990 to help promote civil liberties on the Internet. That’s quite impressive considering the state of the Internet in 1990. Back then we were using BBS and newsgroups to communicate online. Fast forward 27 years and we’re all interconnected. It’s hard to go anywhere or do anything without being tethered to your cellphone. This is yet another reason to encrypt your data. IPVanish allows members to connect on 5 different devices at one time using a single VPN account. This will help protect all your devices. You can even set up IPVanish to run through a router to protect every device on your home network.

The IPVanish Privacy First sale will end soon so you will want to sign up today to take advantage of the discount. To be more exact, the sale will be available until midnight EST on Wednesday, August 23rd. Part of the proceeds will be donated to the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) to help fight for our online privacy.

StrongVPN Net Neutrality Promotion

On Wednesday, July 12th the Internet will come together in protest of the direction the FCC is headed in terms of net neutrality. This is a hot button issue that has come full circle since Trump took office in January. The Internet has gone from net neutrality regulations to a government stance to end net neutrality. These are the same rules that help keep ISP’s like Comcast, Verizon, Time Warner, and AT&T from slowing down or blocking access to websites. The FCC is accepting comments and received feedback from over 3.5 million Internet users in 2015. That helped lead to the strong net neutrality rules that are now in jeopardy. Make sure your voice is heard.

StrongVPN Net Neutrality promotion

StrongVPN will be joining in on the net neutrality efforts on Wednesday and is offering a promotion around the event. You can save 50% off any StrongVPN plan (monthly, quarterly, annual) in addition to their normal term discounts. The special is live and will remain active through July 17th. Sign up during the #StrongForNetNeutrality promotion and benefit from unlimited VPN access from just $2.91 a month.

StrongVPN promo price

The coupon code for the StrongVPN Net Neutrality promotion is DAYOFACTION but you won’t need it. The StrongVPN team has taken care of everything for you. Simply visit their StrongForNetNeutrality page and sign up for any plan to save 50% off. As you can see above, the discount brings the price of unlimited VPN and smartDNS down to $5 a month, $12 a quarter, or just $34.99 for a full year of access. Please take a moment on July 12th to make your voice heard and let the FCC know that we all care deeply about the future of the Internet.
