Microsoft And Apple Have Already Patched “KRACK” Vulnerabilities

Good news for those who are running the latest and greatest, or at least the still supported from either Apple or Microsoft. That rather nasty WiFi vulnerability that I told you about this morning has already been fixed. Apple has disclosed via MacRumors that upcoming updates of iOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS will have the fixes on board. Microsoft has told The Verge that if you are running a supported operating system and you installed the patches that came out on October 10th, you’re good to go.

Now that’s great for Apple and Microsoft users. But Android users will have to wait weeks for a patch. Maybe months depending on who’s phone you own. And what happens to those who own IoT devices, WiFi routers, etc.? It’s anyone guess if or when they’ll be patched. That means that this will be a problem for some time to come.
