Newly Discovered WPA2 WiFi Security Flaw

Ars Technica reported findings about a newly discovered security flaw known as KRACK, which is something that affects WPA2 (a security protocol used in most WiFi devices). KRACK is an acronym for Key Reinstallation Attack and involves reusing a one-time key during an attempt to join a secured WiFi network. When this is done, it gives the hacker the opportunity to decrypt all information that’s being exchanged from the device (smartphone, laptop, etc.) to the access point. Not only is your private information up for grabs, but your credit card numbers, passwords, messages, emails and more are about ready to be stolen.
