Out this morning is word of a major vulnerability in WiFi security called KRACK Attacks. It allows a nearby attacker to watch traffic on your WiFi networks, steal information, and potentially add information (such as malware attacks). This standard, WPA2, is what homes and businesss everywhere use to protect their information.
So, what to do about it? First, don’t throw away your router. There is already a lot of misinformation flying around that we need to wait for router vendors to update their firmware to be safe again. In most instances this isn’t the case.
