Hi,
  as I asked in the header, I'm concerned about the WPA2 protocol flaw known as KRACK (CVE-2017-13077, CVE-2017-13078, CVE-2017-13079, CVE-2017-13080, CVE-2017-13081, CVE-2017-13082, CVE-2017-13084, CVE-2017-13086, CVE-2017-13087, CVE-2017-13088)

See here (link to ars technica article).

More specific: is the Armor Z2 affected, and if, when will a patch be released?

Thanks in advance,

    I have just read that statement.

    The patch firmware is scheduled to be released in Feb 2018??? Are you kidding???

    This is like the locksmith would tell you: "Your door is unlocked and you lost your key? No worries, I will show up in 4 months..."

    Many other vendors have already released a security update or have one scheduled to be released within days. I still hope that this is a joke. Please confirm!
