KRACK WiFi Security Hole

This week’s big news story is actually a big news story. You’ve probably seen a thousand articles, and maybe even some broadcast news stories, about this one.

Turns out that secure WiFi hasn’t been as secure as everyone thought.

Please note: This issue is real. There isn’t a lot of fear-mongering or hyperbole going on with these news reports. Big companies are moving quickly to patch.

Here’s a great story from Fortune about this issue

So, what can you do to stay safe? Unplug all of your devices and avoid the Internet.

JUST KIDDING! PLEASE DON’T DO THAT.

Seriously, the best (and only) thing that anyone can do right now is stay up to date on patches, and then keep reading this and other news sources for other suggestions.

We know a lot of people who don’t like to stay up to date on patches. Please don’t be one of those people. Keep your home and personal devices up to date. Don’t stop pushed updates from installing.

Please let us know if you have questions, or need any clarification on this threat.
