You may have already heard the latest news about Wi-Fi vulnerabilities, and in particular the Krack Attack problem. Microsoft has already released a patch that fixes the Wi-Fi vulnerability for all supported versions of Windows.

Windows is not as vulnerable to the problem as Android and Linux-based platforms that don’t require a unique encryption key, but this fix can have a significant impact on the computer world that primarily uses Windows OS.

We recall that, the exploit revolves around cloning WPA2-encrypted Wi-Fi networks, presenting the MAC address, and changing the Wi-Fi channel. The hacker may force the device to connect to this fake network instead of a legitimate one, which makes it easier to peer into data traffic or break through. This is potentially a huge problem for public Wi-Fi networks.

Almost every Android device is vulnerable to a devastating Wi-Fi attack

As for other platforms, Apple has not yet announced its fix, but Google has already promised that Android phones will be updated in November to be protected by Krack Attack. Wi-Fi Alliance has asked all its partners (including Apple and others) to perform checks and run software patches if needed.
