Wi-Fi Signal Analysis & Fraud Detection
Digitpol developed a probe named “Wi-Fi Signal Analysis” to detect Wi-Fi snooping, payload injection, rogue devices and Wi-Fi Spying in seconds, the probe operates on-location and the data is sent to an AI based database for analysis which then alerts CSO and CIO’s. The probe has prevented thousands of hacking attempts on companies networks and prevented spying on devices installed on networks.
The Wi-Fi Probe Project
Digitpol’s Wi-Fi experts are certain Wi-Fi and IOT over-the-air attacks will rise in 2020, Digitpol’s team are conducting Wi-Fi audits for business across Europe, the probe audits details such as the number of connected devices on a network, Wi-Fi traffic, approved Wi-Fi devices, security flaws, un-authorized devices and instant upgrades. The audits have so far discovered out-of-date firmware allowing remote control, hijacked routers, modified firmware, many connected un-authorised devices and active interception. The probe can be deployed as a fixed install to sites to detect Wi-Fi interference within 900ms.
Digitpol’s digital forensic researchers recently detailed new types of Wi-Fi attacks which were discovered by investigating large data leaks, all of which occurred on the WPA2 security standard. The attacks allowed hackers to crack Wi-Fi passwords on business grade routers regardless of how strong the passwords were set to. In every case, Digitpol discovered that rogue Wi-Fi devices were nearby to conduct interception.
Research & Development
Wi-Fi attacks are more common on business and have been discovered in major investigations. According to cybersecurity firm Avast, a vulnerability in MikroTik WiFi routers has affected nearly 2.5 lakh routers across the globe, leaving them vulnerable to crypto-mining and other forms of cyber-attacks. Of the total affected routers, 11,809 routers in India have been affected. Brazil is most affected with 85,230 routers being affected. Avast stated that hackers have exploited a vulnerability ‘CVE-2018-14847’. This is a vulnerability on Winbox, which is the operating system for MicroTik routers. All its versions will 6.42 allows remote attackers to bypass authentication and read arbitrary files. This then allows them to execute attacks ranging from cryptomining to eavesdropping. Avast suspects that the routers were targeted by cryptomining campaign ‘JS:InfectedMikroTik’.
Digitpol developed a probe for carrying out instant and continuous Wi-Fi detections, the probe is named “Wi-Fi Signal Analysis” its job is to detect Wi-Fi snooping, payload injection, rogue devices and Wi-Fi Spying in seconds, the probe operates on-location and the data is sent to an AI based database for analysis which then alerts CSO and CIO’s. The probe is unique in its scanning modes, collection ability, detection ability and its instant transfer of data to the cloud which is for analysis. The cloud database is developed with AI meaning attacks are detected and prevented on the fly.
The probe has prevented thousands of hacking attempts on companies networks and prevented spying on devices installed on networks.
