Nothing is secure anymore, not even your wifi.

The vulnerability is aptly named KRACK (stands Key Reinstallation Attack) and attacks the poorly implemented random number generator, found in most consumer routers, when a router first negotiates a secure connection with your laptop/phone/dish washer.

That said, this isn't a world-ending Armageddon in the way the botnet of webcams was. You will only be vulnerable if an attacker is within range of your router, and you will still be secure if you're accessing secure websites. However, turning off Wi-Fi on your phone, relying on mobile data, not ignoring HTTPS cert warnings, and plugging into an Ethernet port might not be a bad idea.

Start disabling your wifi and start using ethernet cables!

Just reiterates the needs for encrypted communications like HTTPS and what not.
