The firmware is the software inside the hardware that makes the unit operate.  Almost every unit I see has basically the same firmware the product was shipped with and the KRACK vulnerability exploits a feature that was standard in most Wi-Fi protocols for the last 10 years.  Using the KRACK vulnerability, hackers gain access to your WiFi network without knowing your WiFi passwords.
