What is KRACK?
KRACK is a new network Wi-Fi attack on Wireless Access Points that exploits vulnerabilities within WPA2 Wi-Fi Protocol (The security format that protects Wi-Fi networks).
What is the potential impact?
If affected, the attacker has access to connected Wi-Fi devices to eavesdrop and inject data into the wireless stream to install malware or adware. This could be in the form of modified webpages.
If machines are infected, the impact could be large depending on the number of devices attached to the affected Wireless Access Points. This would require local machine virus cleanup as well as firmware upgrade updates on the Wireless Access Points themselves.
