Frag Attack Vulnerability Information

FragAttacks (fr*agmentation and *ag*gregation *attacks) which is a collection of new security vulnerabilities that affect Wi-Fi devices. An adversary that is within range of a victim's Wi-Fi network can abuse these vulnerabilities to steal user information or attack devices. 

Recently, a set of Wi-Fi vulnerabilities, commonly known as “Frag Attacks” were identified. Zebra is aware of these vulnerabilities and is scoping the impact to our products (i.e. handhelds, scanners, and printers).

Zebra devices use Wi-Fi radios provided by third party suppliers. Addressing these vulnerabilities will require an update to these third-party radios. Currently, Zebra is awaiting information from these vendors on their update plans. As this information becomes available, Zebra will update this notice with details on affected products and mitigation plans.
