Google today published the details of its November security update for Android, finally fixing the KRACK WPA2 vulnerability on Nexus and Pixel devices. It's unclear when others will receive it.
Android devices are significantly implicated in recently revealed WPA2 vulnerabilities with all devices running Android 6.0 and above subject to a more significant variation of the attack.
The LineageOS project has committed several fixes to its custom ROM which will help mitigate the KRACK vulnerability which made WPA2 protocol a target for hacking. It's good news for Android users.
Debian and other Linux distributions based on it, including Linux Mint and Ubuntu, have received patches to the WPA package in order to mitigate new vulnerabilities that were discovered.
After it was revealed that the WPA and WPA2 protocols are vulnerable to hacking, it turned out that Microsoft had already issued a fix for it to supported versions of Windows last week.
