On October 16, a researcher publicly disclosed a potential Wi-Fi security issue. The issue affects “WPA2,” the method used by most devices and routers to protect Wi-Fi traffic as it travels through the air. This is an industry-wide issue, and it could impact anyone using Wi-Fi. But it does have limitations, and corrective patches are on the way.
