News: MikroTik and Ubiquiti fix WPA2 Client Vulnerability

For those unfamiliar with this latest WPA2 Security Vulnerability, please bear in mind the problem is on the client device, not the AP. Therefore rushing to patch your APs is not going to solve all the problems in your network from this vulnerability!

Of course, if you’re using WPA-TKIP (or using ‘both’ TKIP and AES), you DO have more problems than this attack. Therefore please ensure that any support for TKIP is disabled!  If you’re using WEP, this vulnerability will not affect you, but then again, you have even bigger problems anyway!

Ubiquiti UAP AC IW in UK Back boxes

Mounting the UAP AC In-Wall

The Ubiquiti UAP AC in wall (UAP-AC-IW) has arrived and unlike the previous In-wall Unifi the AC variant is built to support multiple mounting and back box designs including UK back boxes.

The Unifi AC In-Wall does not mount in wall like the name would suggest, instead it mounts to the surface of the backbox leaving 30mm sticking out. This is better for RF performance as the radio will have less wall to power through improving performance.

News: Latest Ubiquiti vulnerability info

As many of you are probably aware, a lot of Ubiquiti devices running old firmware are under a new wave of attack taking advantage of an old vulnerability that was fixed a year ago.

In response to this latest wave of problems for some WISPs, Ubiquiti have thoughtfully emailed everyone on their mailing lists with their latest advice, namely:

“In recent days, we’ve seen virus activity taking network devices offline. In most cases, devices are reset to factory defaults. In other cases, devices are still operational, but inaccessible. The virus is using an HTTP/HTTPS exploit that doesn’t require authentication. Simply having a radio with out-of-date firmware and having its HTTP (port 80)/HTTPS (port 443) interface exposed to the Internet is enough to get infected.”

HowTo: MikroTik Secure VPN Part 1.5 MikroTik to MikroTik with IPSec

This is a short HowTo which will cover the set-up of Mikrotik to Mikrotik VPN but secured with IPsec. The use of IPsec can be very CPU intensive and it is recommended that the VPN server be set up on a Mikrotik which supports hardware based AES/IPsec encryption such as the Mikrotik RB850Gx2RB3011 or any CCR series router.

I will be using a RB850Gx2 as my VPN server and a Mikrotik mAP as my VPN clients, all the heavy IPsec processing will be done on the RB850Gx2 which has AES hardware for offloading IPsec calculations. ROS 6.33.3 or higher on the client side is required in order to make use of the ‘easy IPsec connect’ feature.
