A new weakness in WPA2 protocol could allow an attacker to read information that was previously assumed to be encrypted.
Which devices are affected by KRACK?
The KRACK weakness works against all modern, protected Wi-Fi networks. Therefore, if a device supports Wi-Fi, it is most likely affected.
What’s the impact?
The weakness could allow an attacker to network traffic allowing him/her to steal sensitive information such as credit card numbers, passwords, emails etc. In certain configurations, it could also allow an attacker to inject or forge packets, which could be leveraged to potentially inject malware.
