Cryptography researchers have found a new weaknesses in some of the ciphers we all use to encrypt our secure web traffic and VPNs. Though the vulnerabilities take quite a bit of effort to exploit, they do make it theoretically practical for attackers to recover the keys used to security certain encrypted connections. Watch the video to learn a bit more about these new cryptographic vulnerabilities, and check out our knowledge base article below to learn how WatchGuard products are (or in this case, aren’t) affected.
