Research: over 50% of Wi-Fi networks are vulnerable

2 November 2010, by — admin ()

According to British CPP insurance company over a half of Wi-Fi networks can be easily compromised by hackers in a matter of seconds. Most of such networks don’t have password protection and many have simple passwords which can be guessed using a short dictionary.

40 thousand Wi-Fi networks were inspected in large British cities.

Almost 10 thousand networks (25%) had no passwords or basic encryption. Passwords for another 25% of networks were swiftly guessed by specialists.

This demonstrates irresponsibility of half of the users regarding security of their wireless networks.

Hackers don’t need specialized hardware or sophisticated software to gain access to data that passes through unprotected (or hardly protected) Wi-Fi networks. Modern methods only require ordinary notebook and freely available software.
