Last Updated: 10/27/17 at 10:54 AM


As some of you may have heard, a weakness in the WPA2 protocol, known as KRACK or Key Reinstallation Attack, has recently been discovered. This vulnerability could give attackers access to your wireless connections and allow them to install malware on your devices. Due to the nature of this weakness, any device that uses WiFi is likely to be vulnerable to an attack. The first thing you should do to combat this is to update your WiFi client devices, such as your smartphones, tablets, and computers.
