A major security vulnerability was recently discovered in the security software (WPA – Wi-Fi Protected Access) used by millions of Americans to protect their home and business Wi-Fi networks.
The vulnerability, called KRACKs (Key Reinstallation AttaCKs), could allow attackers to intercept and steal data transmitted between your Wi-Fi enabled devices and your password protected Wi-Fi network. Sensitive information – such as Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, and more – could be vulnerable if stored on these Wi-Fi enabled devices.
Any devices that use a Wi-Fi connection are likely vulnerable. Contact your device vendor or visit their website for more information.
