Wireless networks have become a quintessential component for businesses, providing much more than basic connectivity.
A newly analyzed document from Edward Snowden's trove show that the NSA collects personal and account information on system administrators and uses it to compromise their computers in order to access the networks they manage.
Some 300,000 confirmed - but most likely many more - small office/home office (SOHO) routers have been compromised and their DNS settings changed to use two IP addresses in London, effectively allowing yet unknown attackers to perform Man-in-the-Middle attacks.
Tripwire has analyzed the security provided by the most popular wireless routers used in many small and home offices and found that 80 percent of Amazonís top 25 best-selling SOHO wireless router models have security vulnerabilities.
A yet undetermined vulnerability affecting certain Linksys WiFi routers is being actively and massively exploited in the wild to infect the devices with a worm dubbed "TheMoon", warns SANS senior instructor and ISC researcher Johannes Ullrich.
