One of the Fastest to Patch WPA2 Vulnerability Issue
At Ubiquiti Networks we take security very seriously, and realize that it is of the utmost importance. Today, a vulnerability was published about WPA2 encrypted networks, the most commonly recommended encryption method available to protect Wi-Fi devices. We have been working with Jouni Malinen, the original author of hostap, as well as other industry leaders in security, to roll out a stable UniFi firmware in time for the public disclosure. (For more information about the KRACK vulnerability, click here.)
To ensure our customers are protected, we released firmware v.188.8.131.5237 for UniFi Access Points. This firmware resolves the vulnerability on any affected UniFi device and is available for download:
