Two researchers at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium recently announced a major exploit in the security protocol used by most Wi-Fi connected devices around the world.Called Key Reinstallation Attack, or KRACK, the vulnerability affects any Wi-Fi device which uses the WPA2, or Wi-Fi Protected Access II, security protocol, which is implemented on virtually every device on the planet.While this sounds scary, manufacturers are already developing or have developed patches, and the vulnerability’s design makes it difficult for attackers to access a user’s information.In an email, the Rutgers’ Office of Information Technology said, “Attackers can use this so-called KRACK vulnerability to access information that was previously assumed to be safely encrypted, including credit card numbers, passwords, photos and protected health information.

The Rutgers Board of Governors approved of a $74.5 million upgrade to the University’s cogeneration plants in New Brunswick and Newark at their last meeting on April 6.The New Brunswick Cogeneration Plant was built in 1995, and uses three dual-fuel five-megawatt turbines to power the Busch and Livingston campuses, according to a previous article by The Daily Targum.The Newark plant was built in 1987 and does not operate at peak performance due to its age, according to TAPinto New Brunswick. At present, it operates at about 60 percent of full capacity.According to the 2015 Targum article, the Busch plant operates somewhere between 60 and 80 percent capacity.Upgrading the facilities will allow them to generate more electricity while producing fewer emissions and acting more efficiently, according to a pair of Rutgers resolutions.All three of the turbines on Busch and three in Newark will be replaced during this process.

Rutgers University’s new supercomputer has been in a state of partial operation since January when a seal burst, leaking coolant and preventing the system from working as designed.The cooling system broke about two months ago, forcing the shutdown of the complete Caliburn supercomputer, said Manish Parashar, a distinguished professor in the Department of Computer Science. The computer itself did not break, only the cooling system in the facility the computer is located in.“On one of the cold mornings in January, one of the seals for the cooling system broke, causing the coolant to leak,” he said.

State Sen. Ray Lesniak (D-20) would appoint a Rutgers student to the University’s Board of Governors if he is elected to New Jersey’s highest office this November.The state’s longest-serving active legislator attended a town hall hosted by the Rutgers University Democrats on Wednesday night in Van Dyck Hall on the College Avenue campus, where he spoke about his experience and why he believes he should be elected as the Garden State’s 80th governor.During the question-and-answer session that followed his pitch, he voiced support for putting a student on the Rutgers Board of Governors and said he is a cosponsor on a bill which would amend the Rutgers Act of 1956 to put a current student with full voting powers onto the body.“It fits in with my concept of giving the public a voice and a vote in the government, by putting real commuters on the Port Authority board, and bus and train riders on the New Jersey Transit board, and real environmentalists on the (environmental commissions), not just someone who’s my political friend but recommended from those organizations,” he said.Lesniak said that he does not think it is likely that the bill would come up for a vote, given how much time it has already spent in committee.Unlike primary competitor Assemblyman John Wisniewski (D-19), Lesniak would not commit to providing free tuition for public institution students whose families made $125,000 or less, because the state would be unable to pay for it.“What we should do is increase state aid to higher education,” he said.
