Just Sharing This OSMC security update for OSMC 2017.09-1 and earlier



Platforms affected:

  • OSMC for Raspberry Pi (all models)
  • OSMC for Vero (all models)
A series of vulnerabilities [1] have been discovered in WPA2, a protocol that secures all modern protected Wi-Fi networks. An attacker within range of a victim can exploit these weaknesses using key reinstallation attacks (KRACKs). Concretely, attackers can use this novel attack technique to read information that was previously assumed to be safely encrypted.

This vulnerability has now been mitigated and a fix is included in OSMC for all supported platforms.

We recommend you update your device immediately. This can be done by going to My OSMC -> Updates -> Check for Updates. After updating, your system should report OSMC 2017.9-2 as the version in My OSMC.
