    Is there a dnf update ih the pipellne soon for KRACK?

    The famous KRACK problem is in the news,

    "red hat" in the 2nd link points to wpa_supplicant being vulnerable

    where can I look for an update to patch? I looked in updates-testing and there's no wpa_supplicant, so maybe it's too early yet.


    great, looks like it's out:

    $ dnf update --refresh
