Trailrunner7 writes “Security researcher Joshua Wright has developed a simple attack that allows him to recover the passwords for any Verizon MiFi device. The MiFi is essentially a tiny, portable wireless AP, and Wright’s attack uses a simple and effective technique to get default passwords by using the device’s SSID and some existing password attacks on the encryption protocols the MiFi employs. Result: complete 0wnage of any MiFi.”
