Over the past week my wifi-router has been hacked three time and uses the common WPA/2 ten digit password and the reason I know about the hacking is
because I am a bit of a security expert and run my own DNS server on the LAN that blocks spyware sites by issuing false IP-Address for domain names
Any request to the DNS server from a device in the house on the wrong internal IP-Address gets logged and blocked and I have also setup the routers
DHCP server to isue IPs starting at X.X.X.10 and bind MAC address to each registered device and all these legit registered devices get IP-Address
ending in "20" or above so anything that gets a IP-Address ending in less than "20" is not registered by me. (I could had used strict binding but
didn't) and also get blocked in the routers firewall.
Most routers provided by ISP's free of charge do not allow the use of outbound rules so in most case you are at the mercy of anyone near your home who
has looked up how easy it is to hack a free connection into your wi-fi and you can bet this backdoor is being used by the local police and NSA if
school kids are able to follow simple tricks as shown on youtube.
In my case one of the devices used was able to fake the MAC address but the user only changed the first digits of the MAC and it seemed to be an
I-Phone trying to run Skype but I can almost guarantee most of you are being hacked so watch out, use strict IP/MAC bindings if that is an option.
I run a program that keeps an eye on the routers sys-logs and will tweak the code to sound an alarm the next time this happens and will try to catch
the person responsible just to say well done for teaching me a lesson.
