WPA2 PSK (WPS weakness)

WPA2 PSK (WPS weakness)
Turning the SSID broadcast off won't do anything to enhance security; if anything, it can actually reduce your security. The reason for this is that when the access point isn't broadcasting the SSID, your wireless device has to initiate the conversation, as opposed to the other way around. This means that if you take your laptop to other locations, it will send out signals asking your home SSID if it's there, which could be recorded by any nearby device that's listening. Well then i must have listened to the wrong security guys lol...Thanks

How to Crack WPA2 WPS WiFi password Wifi Protected Setup or WPS is a 802.11 certified standard for delivering security over your Wireless network. Wi-Fi Protected Setup enables typical users who possess little understanding of traditional Wi-Fi configuration and security settings to automatically configure new wireless networks, add new devices and enable security. WPS has been accompanying WPA2 since 2007, with over 200 wireless routers that support WPS with WPA2. Storing Hierarchical Data in a Database, Part 2 Now, let’s have a look at another method for storing trees. Recursion can be slow, so we would rather not use a recursive function. We’d also like to minimize the number of database queries. Preferably, we’d have just one query for each activity.

Wireless Tips – Does Your Wireless Router Keep Disconnecting or Dropping the Connection? I’ve had a Netgear wireless router for about a year now and it’s been pretty good until a couple of weeks back all of sudden my wireless connection kept dropping or I could not connect to the router unless I restarted the router! It was a royal pain in the butt, but because I’m lazy I didn’t get around to fixing it earlier! If you’re in the same situation, here’s what you can do to fix the problem!

Researchers crack the world’s toughest encryption by listening to the tiny sounds made by your computer’s CPU Security researchers have successfully broken one of the most secure encryption algorithms, 4096-bit RSA, by listening — yes, with a microphone — to a computer as it decrypts some encrypted data. The attack is fairly simple and can be carried out with rudimentary hardware. The repercussions for the average computer user are minimal, but if you’re a secret agent, power user, or some other kind of encryption-using miscreant, you may want to reach for the Rammstein when decrypting your data. This acoustic cryptanalysis, carried out by Daniel Genkin, Adi Shamir (who co-invented RSA), and Eran Tromer, uses what’s known as a side channel attack. A side channel is an attack vector that is non-direct and unconventional, and thus hasn’t been properly secured. For example, your pass code prevents me from directly attacking your phone — but if I could work out your pass code by looking at the greasy smudges on your screen, that would be a side channel attack.
