There is a new Wi-Fi vulnerability that requires immediate action in order to protect your network. A new bug, “KRACK,” puts almost every wireless-enabled device at risk for attack–including computers, phones, and routers. The bug exposes a flaw in WPA2, a common protocol used to secure most wireless networks. The flaw could allow an attacker to eavesdrop on your network traffic and potentially wreak havoc.
Multiple wireless products are affected by these newly-found vulnerabilities. The good news is: fixes via software updates are already available for select products, and additional software fixes will be published as they become available.
