Glossy networks make use of concurrent transmissions to achieve rapid network flooding in wireless networks with high reliability. They are robust against jamming and header injection attacks. We find that Glossy floods can be hijacked by a packet injection attacker to penetrate into the network and cause severe loss. We demonstrate the design of such an attacker by evaluating its effectiveness in a 30-node testbed.
