As you have seen in our previous postings, a cybercriminal will attempt to use any type of flaw which exists.  One of the more recent ones is the KrØØk vulnerability, also known as CVE-2019-15126.  This vulnerability can be found in a specific Cypress and Broadcom Wi-Fi chipset which can be found in millions of  smartphones, tablets, laptops, Wi-Fi- access points and routers.
While this isn’t good news, the one benefit is that the KrØØk flaw needs to be in close proximity with the Wireless connection in order to decrypt and steal sensitive data from your devices.  The only solution is to make sure that your wireless devices are running on the latest updates and have security patches. If you are not sure if you or your organization is capable of handling vulnerable security flaws, contact OptfinITy at (703)790-0400 or and we would be happy to help!
