Falla nei modem wifi Alice

Thursday, January 24th, 2008

Pochi giorni fa e` stata scoperta una simpatica vulnerabilita` di sicurezza nei modem/access point Alice Gate 2 plus, che molti abbonati a servizia ADSL Alice hanno in comodato d’uso.

La vulnerabilita` in questione e` evidenziata su ed e` da considerarsi gravissima perche` permette di disabilitare l’utilizzo della crittografia nella rete wifi se qualche utente, precedentemente autenticato su tale rete, clicca piu` o meno volutamente sull’url evidenziato nell’advisory.
Un attaccante puo` riuscire ad abbassare il livello di protezione di una rete wifi in modo da riuscere ad associarvisi, e un utente non attento potrebbe ritrovarsi con una rete wifi aperta a tutto il mondo che passi sotto casa sua.

Cinema: Io sono leggenda

Io sono leggenda: Un vius trasforma gli umani in degli zombi affamati di sangue ma rimangono alcuni sopravissuti che devono nascondersi e combattere.
Solito film alla "un virus infetta il mondo e io salvo tutti", una totale delusione, tempo perso.
Citazione: "Perche` le persone che cercano di far migliore questo mondo non si concedono un giorno libero"
