Wi-Fi Security Warning.... 

October 17, 2017

WPA2 is used to protect most WiFi connections and since it’s vulnerable it means hackers could read information that was assumed to be safely encrypted. This means information such as credit card numbers, passwords, chat messages, emails, photos and more can be stolen.

Attackers can also use the vulnerability to infect websites with viruses and malware.

An attack “against all modern protected WiFi networks” on operating systems would include Android, Linux, Apple, Windows, OpenBSD, MediaTek, Linksys” and more.

Google is currently working on a patch, while Microsoft said it’s already released a security update to fix the issue.  (Newser)
