SSA-344983 (Last Update: 2019-12-10): Vulnerability in WPA2 Key Handling affecting SCALANCE W700 and SCALANCE W1700 Devices


2019-12-10 00:00:00 UTC


The latest firmware updates for the SCALANCE W700 and W1700 wireless device families fix a vulnerability affecting WPA/WPA2 key handling. It might be possible to, by manipulating the EAPOL-Key frames, decrypt the Key Data field without the frame being authenticated.

This has impact on WPA/WPA2 architectures using TKIP encryption. The attacker must be in the wireless range of the device to perform the attack.
