KRACK Announcement
Monday, October 23, 2017

Last week, a potential risk due to vulnerabilities in WPA/WPA2 security was discovered. We are reacting, along with our partner community, to provide the latest updates on how to ensure the integrity of your systems. More information is below.

The US-CERT recently published VU#228519 in response to how Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) handshake traffic can be manipulated to induce nonce and session key reuse. This attack has been named KRACK (Key Reinstallation AttACKs).

KRACK is a security vulnerability that targets a key step in the Wi-Fi authentication protocol to break security encryption. These vulnerabilities could enable a proximate attacker (within Wi-Fi range of both the client device and the access point) to access and tamper with Wi-Fi packets over connections that are protected by WPA/WPA2 encryption.

Over the past week, Barcoding, Inc., has been working with our vendors who produce products that may be affected by KRACK so that we can recommend a secure path forward to our loyal customers. Barcoding, Inc., along with our vendors, take security seriously and are committed to implementing patches for KRACK.

For customers that use Barcoding’s StayLive Services™, you will be notified as soon as patches are available for your devices. We will then work with you to schedule updates for the affected devices enrolled in StayLive Services™. For all other customers, we will continue to update you about patches from our major vendors. You will then have the option to apply these patches yourself or request Barcoding’s assistance.

We will continue to update you as information becomes available from our partner community.
