Incredible Lessons I’ve Learned About Computers
Knowing that the hack is only successful if the target router’s password was the default factory setting gives us the conclusion that users are safe if they have changed their passwords as the hackers rely on the manufacturer’s default passwords.
Valuable Lessons I’ve Learned About Computers
There are still a lot of routers out there that still have the same default passwords and many router setup wizards does not really tell the user to change the administrator password because it is a router setting that is really unnoticeable. This specific attack situation illustrates what sort of seemingly small and easily forgotten setting could have serious security ramifications, therefore, it looks like a good time to examine some actions you can take to make sure the wired or perhaps wireless house router — and by expansion, your network – is really as secure as is possible. Ensure you change the SSID. In the same manner, many users forget to change their passwords, they also fail to change their default wifi SSID that displays all information about the device and all additional information. Replace the defaults and make new and custom SSID thus avoiding personal information like your family name or your address. Make sure your SSID transmit is not on. Be sure that when you fail to close your SSID, then hackers will have an easier time to penetrate through your system and end up messing with the settings, so take some time to develop software that protects your information. Therefore, make sure that few people know anything about your network, as this will allow this information to be confidential and any alteration will be known by someone who uses this router. Use WPA instead. However the weaknesses of WEP have already been widely recorded for years, various continue to use that, and it is the default security method about some products. In conclusion, use WPA and do not buy devices that only support WEP.
