New Vulnerability Impacting WiFi Communications

Leslie Whitten

Your password secured WiFi could be vulnerable to hackers who take advantage of a new Kr00k bug.  Typically Wifi that requires a password to access is encrypted, meaning basically that nearby users don’t have access to what you are doing online.  This may be a reason to avoid using public Wifi at your local coffee shop or your hotel.  As always, make sure to use a VPN when accessing any sensitive information online in a public space.  To read more about the Kr00k bug and how to protect your sensitive information, check out this zdnet article.
