Consequences of compromised home WiFi network?

I know next to nothing about networking, and was hoping to get a little insight.

Here’s the scenario: Employee’s working from home using their own un-managed devices. Company work is done via virtual desktops (company managed/secured – no usb redirection, no drive mapping, MFA with app, etc).

If an employee’s wireless network was cracked (could be as stupid as never changing default admin credentials on the router) , what can an attacker access? Can they see into the company VDI? Can they listen in on teleconference meetings (like Zoom)? Can malicious software be delivered directly to the employee’s endpoint via the compromised wifi?



Assuming Zoom and VDI login over an encrypted channel, very difficult to intercept.

Infecting a computer remotely is also very difficult.

Phishing attacks, where an email / IM is sent to the employee and they open the link of their own volition and even download and run the virus are much easier.
