Microsoft has issued an out-of-band Windows 10 patch to fix a self-inflicted error that can crash devices that attempt to access Wi-Fi networks secured with Wi-Fi Protected Access 3 (WPA3) standard.
If you've adopted either update and use WPA3, it has the unintended consequence of occasionally delivering a steaming fresh serve of Blue Screen of Death.
Or as Microsoft puts it.
You might receive stop error 0x7E in nwifi.sys with a blue screen when you attempt to use a Wi-Fi Protected Access 3 (WPA3) connection. You are more likely to encounter this issue when reconnecting to a Wi-Fi network after disconnecting, or when waking from sleep or hibernation.
The good news is that there's not a lot of WPA-3 out there, so relatively few users will be affected. The out-of-band patch described in kb5001028 should also arrive automatically.
Unless you can't get into a Wi-Fi network because of the bug, in which case The Register wishes you a happy weekend figuring that out. ®
