Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  Exploit Included:  Yes  
Version(s): 2.6 and prior
Description:   Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in wpa_supplicant. A remote user on the wireless network can access and modify data on the wireless network.

A remote user within range of the wireless network can record and replay retransmissions of part of the 802.11i 4-way handshake of the WPA and WPA2 protocols to force a reinstallation of the pairwise transient key, a group key, or an integrity key and force a reset of the incremental transmit packet number nonce and the receive replay counter. As a result, the remote user can replay encrypted packets, decrypt packets, and forge packets.

Both client systems and access points are affected.

A remote user on the wireless network can reinstall the pairwise encryption key (PTK-TK) [CVE-2017-13077].

A remote user on the wireless network can reinstall the group key (GTK) [CVE-2017-13078, CVE-2017-13080].

A remote user on the wireless network can reinstall the integrity group key (IGTK) [CVE-2017-13079, CVE-2017-13081].

A remote user on the wireless network can retransmit the Fast BSS Transition (FT) Reassociation Request and reinstall the pairwise encryption key (PTK-TK) [CVE-2017-13082].

A remote user on the wireless network can reinstall the Tunneled Direct-Link Setup (TDLS) PeerKey (TPK) key in the TDLS handshake [CVE-2017-13086].

A remote user on the wireless network can reinstall the group key (GTK) when processing a Wireless Network Management (WNM) Sleep Mode Response frame [CVE-2017-13087].

A remote user on the wireless network can reinstall the integrity group key (IGTK) when processing a Wireless Network Management (WNM) Sleep Mode Response frame [CVE-2017-13088].

This set of vulnerabilities is referred to as KRACK (Key Reinstallation AttaCK).

Mathy Vanhoef and Frank Piessens from Katholieke Universiteit Leuven reported these vulnerabilities. John Van Boxtel from Cypress reported one vulnerability.

[Editor's note: The vulnerabilities reside in the WPA and WPA2 protocol specification and are not due to incorrect vendor implementation of the standards.]

Impact:   A remote user on the wireless network can access and modify data on the wireless network.
Solution:   Ubuntu has issued a fix.

The Ubuntu advisory is available at:
