Microsoft has already fixed a gap in Wi-Fi; Google promises to fix soon

Technology companies have begun to move to fix the breach in the protocol that keeps Wi-Fi safe and that threatens virtually every device that accesses Wi-Fi networks in the world. Google promises to launch a fix as fast as possible for its smartphones, while Microsoft has already made a patch available to its users.

The Verge, Microsoft said it has released a fix for the bug that affects Wi-Fi networks with WPA or WPA 2 encryption. “We have released a security update to address this issue,” the company said. “Consumers who upgrade, or who have automatic updates enabled, will be protected.”

Google is promising to upgrade to Pixel smartphones in the coming weeks. The fix for other Android smartphones depends on other manufacturers, who have so far not commented on the case. The same goes for Apple and iOS and MacOS devices.

The flaw revealed Monday will jeopardize Wi-Fi networks with WPA or WPA 2 encryption and allow hackers to intercept traffic between devices and even inject malware into websites. Security researchers say devices with macOS, Windows, Android and Linux are vulnerable to the bug.
