Last week, Microsoft released an update ‘Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB4041676‘. Guess what was also included within this… Yup! The Patch for the Krack Vulnerability. At this time the KRACK vulnerability that was not publicly disclosed, until Monday, October 16 2017.

“A spoofing vulnerability exists in the Windows implementation of wireless networking. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could potentially replay broadcast and/or multicast traffic to hosts on a WPA or WPA 2-protected wireless network.”
