WPA2 Wi-Fi Vulnerability

This just in.

From BleepingComputer:

Mathy Vanhoef, a researcher from the University of Leuven (KU Leuven), has discovered a severe flaw in the Wi-Fi Protected Access II (WPA2) protocol that secures all modern protected Wi-Fi networks.

The flaw affects the WPA2 protocol itself and is not specific to any software or hardware product.

Vanhoef has named his attack KRACK, which stands for Key Reinstallation Attack.

Yikes!

Ernie Ball: The Hetfield + Hammett Experience

This is something that I’ve been meaning to post for two weeks. Finally I get to pick up a few packs of Ernie Ball strings at a local Guitar Center. I am working on a few guitars this week.

From Metallica:

What do James and Kirk do when they’re not on tour?  Hang out at HQ!  And now you have the chance to hang with them!  In conjunction with our friends at Ernie Ball, makers of fine guitar strings and instrument accessories, three lucky winners will be coming to the San Francisco Bay Area to spend the day with James and Kirk at HQ AND get their choice of a Hetfield or Hammett Signature ESP Guitar.
