Article: New Dragonblood vulnerabilities found in WiFi WPA3 standard

Earlier this week the same researchers that found the original set of vulnerabilities in the Dragonfly handshake for WPA3 have found two more. I thought WPA3 would be less vulnerable than WPA2 but it seems the WiFi Alliance continues to struggle with coming up with a secure algorithm to prevent unauthorized access. The WiFi Alliance recently announced WPA3.1 which will not be vulnerable to these attacks but that’s also at the expense of backward comparability. If you are in the market now for a WPA3 enabled router I would suggest waiting a little bit longer for WPA3.1 to come out.
