Due to the sad news for WPA2


Where are Sense on that part? Safe, or update on they way?

    I would like to see a specific statement or update change log, where the CVE's are listed.

    Me too. 


    F-Secure, please provide us with clear and coherent information. According to the blog post linked above, we should consider getting a Sense router to stay safe from KRACKattack and the equivalent. Well, some of us already did. So are we safe yet or not?

    F-Secure, if you want to stay at consumer business and be profiled as a high security vendor, you have to invest also to the communication and response. Was this a surprise to you guys that people will start asking a) if they are safe b) release notes c) official response d) actual update?


    Please take a look at the list for the big boys:


    PS. It might not hurt you to be included as "updated" in listings like this... 


  • Well sense is based on ddwrt so it might also be affected and needs an update.

    And I can bet anything on that they are either working on releasing a fix or sense is not affected.

    But a fix on sense side does not fix the client side of all wifi using devices which also need a fix if I understood the issue right.

    Which is why people are installing MS and Android updates as well...

    Came here looking for an answer on this, too.  The announcement of this fix, when complete, should be sent via e-mail to all users, not just in a forum post.

    Hello Everyone,


    We've created KRACK fix and we're currently putting it through quality control. We'll push the update out as soon as the testing is done.


  • Fw with fix has been released about 3 hours ago. Reboot sense to upgrade faster.
