Regarding the vulnerability in WPA2 Wi-Fi encryption protocol

Recently, a researcher made public a vulnerability known as KRACKs in the standard wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) encryption protocol WPA2. This vulnerability allows an attacker to intentionally intercept the wireless transmission between the client (a device equipped with Wi-Fi functionality) and the access point (the router etc.) to perform potentially malicious activity. For that reason, this vulnerability cannot be exploited by anyone outside the range of the Wi-Fi signal or by anyone in a remote location using the internet as an intermediary.
