"Biometrics, be it face or fingerprint, offer a tradeoff between a very narrow additional security risk and a lot of convenience," added Weaver. "The convenience is I no longer have to keep typing my password all the time."

"That is nuke drive," Nicholas Weaver, a computer science researcher at the International Computer Science Institute, told Ars. "Degaussing literally destroys the drive because it not only erases data, it erases the synchronization information on the drive."

“Without public evidence, its smoke but no fire. But it’s enough to encourage everybody to ditch Kaspersky,” Nicholas Weaver, senior researcher for networking and security at Berkeley’s International Computer Science Institute, tells Fast Company.

Nicholas Weaver, a computer scientist at the University of California, Berkeley, notes that a determined attacker could always send a person to physically compromise a server.

Others we spoke to, like Nicholas Weaver, a senior staff researcher at the International Computer Science Institute in Berkeley, Calif., also pointed to ARP spoofing as the method of attack. "ARP spoofing is effectively the same thing as DHCP spoofing, you're responding to a broadcast request you aren't supposed to," he said.

How to protect your Wi-Fi network from a Krack attack

Writing on his blog, Nicholas Weaver, a senior staff researcher focusing on computer security at the International Computer Science Institute in Berkeley, California, and a lecturer in computer science at UC Berkeley, said that although Krack was a novel vulnerability, it did not allow attackers to join the network and relied too much on physical proximity.

“Whenever I’m faced with KBA-type questions I find that database tools like Spokeo, Zillow, etc are my friend because they are more likely to know the answers for me than I am,” said Nicholas Weaver, a senior researcher in networking and security for the International Computer Science Institute (ICSI).
