5 Areas Where WiFi is Vulnerable


One of the easiest way to break into a company is certainly WiFi. My good friend George Ou broke the news of TJ Maxx being hacked due to unsecured WiFi some years back and since that time, hackers have only gotten more aggressive. The company lost 45.6 million card numbers due to this hack which is never good for business. Any company or home using WiFi can be potentially hacked if they aren't careful. Sure, a determined advesary can likely get into your systems with enough effort but you shouldn't make it easy for them.

With that, there are a number of things you can do to make life more channenging for evil-doers looking to steal your data wirelessly. Here are a few:

  • Using a default SSID or password
  • Not physically securing the APs and network hardware
  • Having a shared Wi-Fi network password
  • Allowing users to connect to neighboring Wi-Fi networks
  • Allowing unauthorized access via misconfigured VLANs

For additional areas to shore up security, please read this piece from Eric Geier and CSO Magazine.
