Does your business have WIFI? The software on your router may need to be upgraded. According to US-CERT
 
US-CERT has become aware of several key management vulnerabilities in the 4-way handshake of the Wi-Fi Protected Access II (WPA2) security protocol. The impact of exploiting these vulnerabilities includes decryption, packet replay, TCP connection hijacking, HTTP content injection, and others. Note that as protocol-level issues, most or all correct implementations of the standard will be affected. The CERT/CC and the reporting researcher KU Leuven, will be publicly disclosing these vulnerabilities on 16 October 2017.
 
What this means is, you should update the software on your WIFI access points/Routers at home or work. In some cases you may need to purchase new equipment if your hardware vendor is no longer creating patches.
