    Hello,
    I wonder what kind of countermeasures there are out there against wps locked routers : after around 6 years almost all vendors seem to have implemented in their firmwares lockdown features in their routers including cisco, netgear, tp-link, zyxel, dlink etc and patches against the pixiedust attack.Is this the end of the wps vulnerability exploit and the tools like reaver, bully and pixiewps?

    Nowadays most of the modern routers have protection against this type of attacks

    It is DOS attacks right?

    I have not had success with it so far but if you have an Android phone and the network is near, you can try using WPS WPA Tester (its a hit and miss too).

    Nowadays, some routers doesn't have a default wps pin so sometimes it cannot crack it
