Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) Vulnerability Notice
A flaw exists in the Wi-Fi Alliance’s WPS specification that would allow a hacker with a password-guessing tool to guess the password within a few hours (brute-force attack). If a hacker brute forces the WPS PIN and retrieves the password for the wireless network, he could access your wireless network data.
This flaw exists in all WPS-enabled wireless devices.
ZyXEL recommends you do the following:
- Do not use the WPS PIN Configuration method (see your product’s documentation)
- Use WPA2 encryption with a long password mixing letters and numbers.
- Disable UPnP.
- Enable MAC address filtering and allow only known computers to access your wireless network.
