Is there a list I can look at that shows what Fingbox can protect against?

    I've checked in with @Carlo_from_Fing and I can confirm that right now we do not detect that attack with Fingbox.

    Hi @J_H_ and welcome to the forums.  By default Fingbox will protect against Network Vulnerabilities and does Wifi Intrusion Detection..  for the specific pmkid and a possible list of thwarting attacks that Fingbox is capable of, perhaps @Robin or @VioletChepil from Fing can answer?

    Don't see how it can. pmkid is exploited during the handshake portion of the WiFi SSID connection - in other words, the attacker is currently outside the network.

    In addition, the best defense against this would be a hardened router and a inline firewall in between the router and the external interface.
    People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.
