This fall, a vulnerability was found in Wi-Fi’s WPA security protocol. In plain English, this means that it’s possible for hackers to get into your network (and therefore into your private data) through any Wi-Fi device. All modern Wi-Fi networks are at risk – not just certain products or devices. The flaw was dubbed KRACK: Key Reinstallation Attack.
Because our Wi-Fi network clocks are included in this vulnerability, we took swift action to patch it.
