WiFi Networks vulnerable to virus attacks, study shows

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: March 2, 2014

A group of talented individuals over at the University of Liverpool, spearheaded by Network Security Professor Allan Marshall, has developed a virus called Chameleon which not only can infiltrate “poorly managed” Routers and Access Points, but also effectively spread to other wireless devices, particularly in a dense populated area where Wi-Fi networks are abundant. Just to set things clear, the researchers didn’t intend to hack unknowing users when they developed Chameleon, but rather to merely demonstrate the vulnerability of a Wi-Fi network and how such virus can eventually infect other wireless devices. Of course, Marshall’s team didn’t give a lot…

Relevance: 79%      Posted on: November 23, 2011

Saw something similar to this one about a year ago from Edimax and it was a cool way to extend WiFi range within the house or building. This one is even simpler and cheaper -- a Wireless-N WiFi Repeater that plugs directly into the wall socket. What it basically does is extend the range of your WiFi at home. So it picks up the existing WiFi you currently have and then boosts it further to the corners of the house or building. The device also has a single standard LAN port to share internet over the wires. This is especially…

An MIT team demonstrates the possibility of powering up gadgets and electrical appliances wirelessly: A team from MIT's Department of Physics, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies (ISN) has experimentally demonstrated an important step toward accomplishing this vision of the future. Realizing their recent theoretical prediction, they were able to light a 60W light bulb from a power source seven feet (more than two meters) away; there was no physical connection between the source and the appliance. The MIT team refers to its concept as "WiTricity" (as in wireless electricity). The work will be…
