Impact : Information Disclosure or Exposure of Internal Resources
CVE ID : CVE-2020-26139
On May 11th, 2021, Mathy Vanhoef (New York University Abu Dhabi) published a
new paper, Fragment and Forge: Breaking Wi-Fi Through Frame Aggregation and
Fragmentation , on a number of vulnerabilities in the base 802.11 protocol
(802.11 is the standard that Wi-Fi is built on). The paper discloses three
design flaws in the 802.11 standard and nine common implementation flaws
related to aggregation and fragmentation functionality.
These vulnerabilities could allow an attacker to forge encrypted frames, which
could in turn enable the exfiltration of sensitive data from a targeted device.
