    It's that WiFi vulnerability Belodion...
    I'm not convinced it's Krack, haven't heard of any in the wild, just a vulnerability as far as I know. The anti malware companies are cashing on in the rear by the looks...
    Just in case, don't use WiFi unless you trust it, change all passwords and watch the device for unusual activity like data use, battery drainage....

    ^ I thought the spelling for that was 'Crack'.

    The exploit is known as the Key Reinstallation Attack, hence KRACK.

    Krack Quick Fix - VPN Free Privacy Forever claims to be one way of avoiding the problem. (Of course, those with unlimited data can simply not use Wifi at all.)

    Changing WiFi passwords does not protect you from KRACK. The attack completely circumvents the password query procedure. Using HTTPS helps, but HTTPS alone may not offer adequate protection if a hacker intercepts the entire data traffic. A VPN service is the best option other than a patch to Android.
