Security Update

WPA2 Krack Vulnerability

Overview

A new vulnerability could impact all devices using WPA2 protocols to secure their wi-fi networks, according to a report released by US-CERT.  More details in the blog article: https://www.krackattacks.com/

The weakness in the WPA2 protocol allows for attackers to not only read and steal information transmitted across wi-fi, but also potentially manipulate the data or insert malware.

How it Affects DrayTek Wireless Router Products

When DrayTek wireless products, such as wireless routers and access points, are used as wireless base stations, they are not affected by the KRACK (Key Reinstallation AttaCK) vulnerability; therefore, patches or updates are not required.

However, other devices connecting to DrayTek products and functioning as wireless clients (e.g., mobile phones, tablets, laptops, etc.,) could be vulnerable. You should check with device vendors to determine if updates are needed.

When DrayTek products are used as wireless clients and access into Internet with universal repeater or wireless WAN modes, the wireless traffic is susceptible to interception as the router or access point is acting as a wireless client.

DrayTek will be releasing firmware updates to address the issue starting next week.

Routers with wireless WAN support, and their corresponding fixed firmware versions:

Note:   Routers not listed below are not affected by the vulnerability.

  •          Vigor2860 wireless series, version, 3.8.5.1
  •          Vigor2830v2 wireless series, version, 3.8.1.3
  •          Vigor2925 wireless series, version, 3.8.5
  •          Vigor2912 wireless series, version 3.8.5
  •          Vigor2120, wireless series, version 3.8.5

Access points with universal repeater or Station-Infrastructure support, and their corresponding fixed firmware versions:

  •          AP910c, version 1.2.3.1
  •          AP900, version 1.2.1.1
  •          AP902, version 1.2.3
  •          AP810, version 1.2.3
  •          AP710, version 1.2.3
  •          AP800, version 1.1.6.2
