Researchers devise spread malicious software wirelessly .. Kalzakam
Enables researchers from the creation of the first malicious software spread as “cold”, through the air, contrary to what is known, which is dependent on the extent of the proximity between the host and the injured victim is infected.
In the early days of personal computers viruses were spread across what is known as the “Network Intrusion”, through the introduction of an infected floppy disk in computers is first infected by one, and then it developed, viruses became entirely dependent on the networks.
And move across networks is much faster compared to the traditional networks to infiltrate, which depends on the transition from one computer to another, or from a server “server” to the computer.
And can “Chamilin” Chameleon, a name given researchers the University of Liverpool British Veroshm wireless, access to the wireless network and “sniffing” data and users’ credentials that pass through the network.
The virus is transmitted from an access point to another wirelessly, and more quickly within densely populated areas, those areas with a lot of access points that provide access to networks “Wi-Fi” unlocked.
The limited experience of the virus, “Chamilin within the laboratory, there are researchers monitored the behavior should be noted and dreaded virus.
For his part, said, “Alan Marshall,” a professor at the University of network security for Liverpool, “when he attacked Chamilin access point, did not affect how they work, but was able to collect and report on the credentials of all users connected to Wi-Fi networks other.”
Marshall added that the virus then sought to reach the access points and networks “Wi-Fi” and other contact and infected.
The researchers describe a virus that is very aggressive, so it activates in the search for the weakest and most vulnerable to penetration from each network, and in the case eluded him access point for being encrypted or fitted with firewall, it goes simply to the next point most vulnerable to penetration, this virus does not reside only networks instead of personal computers.
Experts believe that such viruses can not be discovered by default anti-virus programs.
