The AE6000 USB adapter is not listed on the Linksys WPA/Krack advisory. Does that mean it isn't vulnerable?

Hi, Fla_Sun! It may not be vulnerable, but safety comes first. The KRACK attack is more on the wireless client or devices connected to the network. Make sure that devices on the network run their latest firmware to prevent this vulnerability. Stay tuned for updates.

What? Surely you're not mistaking the AE6000 for a wireless router are you? My other Linksys wireless adapter, WUSB6300 is on the list (as well as my router WRT1900ACS) so I am trying to update to the, "latest firmware to prevent this vulnerability".
So can anyone from Linksys answer my original question: "Is the AE6000 vulnerable to the WPA/Krack vulnerability?"

Did you confirm this with Linksys engineering? The Krack vulnerability is with the WPA/WPA2 protocol not the product so it seems it should be on the list with the other USB WIFI adapters. Please confirm.

Hi, I received your private message on this topic as well. Our Product Engineers conducted a thorough validation of the AE6000 adapter with the currently available drivers and did not find any KRACK related issues.
