Cybersecurity expert Alexander Vurasko said in an interview with Sputnik radio what information could fall into the hands of attackers who gain access to someone else’s Wi-Fi router. He looked for ways to protect his home networks from hacking.
Alexander Vurasko, a specialist in Rostelecom-Solar special services, warned in an interview with Sputnik radio that a home Wi-Fi network can be hacked by attackers if the owner of the router neglects the security rules.
After gaining access to a wireless network, an attacker could, for example, steal important information from users’ personal correspondence, the expert continued.
Wi-Fi users may not even realize that attackers gain access to the router. Therefore, it is better to take safety measures in advance. The expert recommends that the owner of the device choose the best type of encryption for the home network, as well as protect it with a unique password.
The specialist noted that there is no need to change the password on the router every month, but it is still worth doing it with a certain frequency.
