Yes, there are 2 vulnerabilities recently discovered in wi fi, both critical and companies should be patching them shortly. This is REALLY important.

They do recommend you do not use an Android device to do business until the patch is available. It is funny however, because I had seen people stop by the house, out front, with cell phone in hand, standing there, for long times, like up to 5 or more minutes, and I know it is very apparent by the cable that is wrapped around our house, they were attempting to get at my Wifi signal to at the very least piggy back on mine. The police never thought anything about it when I reported the suspicious activity and told me there was nothing to worry about. This took place a few years back. I now know the thread is real. My computer uses a wireless router as most people do and it may not currently be an issue for people who have Windows 10 but I keep my firmware and software for my wireless modem updated on a regular basis and use Norton security and update it on a daily basis as well. We are living in times of Cyber Warfare. It's no longer just a local problem but a world wide epidemic.
