    Researchers have discovered several holes in a new security protocol for wireless networks. It warrants patching because although no one has exploited the bugs in the wild yet, they’re severe enough to let people steal your Wi-Fi passwords.

    Researchers Mathy Vanhoef of New York University Abu Dhabi and Eyal Ronen of Tel Aviv University & KU Leuven discovered the flaws in the WPA3 Wi-Fi authentication protocol. They published the results of their research in a technical paper, which you can get from Vanheof’s dedicated microsite. Vanhoef also discovered the KRACK vulnerability that affected WPA2 in 2017.
