"KRACK (short for Key Reinstallation AttaCK) targets the third step in a four-way authentication “handshake” performed when Wi-Fi client devices attempt to connect to a protected Wi-Fi network. The encryption key can be resent multiple times during step three, and if attackers collect and replay those retransmissions in particular ways, Wi-Fi security encryption can be broken."

This affects all WPA2 implementations. Microsoft already provided a patch. All device manufacturers have already been informed the latest since 28 August 2017.

Refer to https://www.krackattacks.com/

I am aware of http://www.zyxel.com/support/announcement_wpa2_key_management.shtml but I am not sure whether this applies for my product as well.

Anyway the last Firmware update for the nwa1123-ac dates from September 2016´so I am looking forward to at least yearly updates...
