Vulnerability KRACK WiFi: is your Android protected?

Several weeks ago we learned about the threat that was hanging over millions of devices connected to WiFi networks: a vulnerability of WPA2 allowed intercepting data traffic between them and the Internet, a potential danger to the privacy of virtually all users in the world. Luckily, this exploit has been corrected and patched, although not quite.

Not all devices have received a security update, although many. In Android, for example, there are a few that are completely safe and the rest must be manually protected by the user Jerry’s Guide has published a list of all Android mobile devices protected against KRACK , the most dangerous WiFi vulnerability known so far.

In the list there are some of the mobile phones recently landed in the market, although it is missing a much more determined action of the brands to protect users of other older smartphones and tablets. After all, they are not to blame for this situation and could see the security of their personal information seriously compromised.

These are all devices that have received the patch against KRACK , ordered alphabeticallyby AndroidCentral. The latest Nokia, such as the Nokia 8, have received this update. Also the Samsung Galaxy S8, the Note 8 or the Sony Xperia XA1. Surprisingly some of the main flagships have been kept on the sidelines by many brands.
