    I have Norton Security which is ok. But now they are bombarding me to pay a great deal more to protect myself from Krack. I suspect they are taking the pxxx. Do you agree that I should ignore them.
    As a 70 odd year old novice I would greatly appreciate your advice. Many thanks for your great service.

      You shouldn't have to pay anyone to be "protected from KRACK", so I think your suspicion is correct.
