Microsoft patches WPA3 WiFi BSOD bug in Windows 10 version 1909

Microsoft issued an out-of-band update that resolves a pretty frustrating Windows 10 bug that was introduced by the KB4598298 and KB4601315 updates. Only Windows 10 version 1909 and Windows Server version 1909 are affected. Users are advised to upgrade to a newer version of Windows 10 as version 1909 is no longer supported.

The software giant says devices can stop working and display a blue screen when you attempt to make a connection to a WiFi network that uses WPA3 protection. This bug is resolved by the new KB5001028 update.
This security update includes quality improvements. Key changes include:

  • Addresses an issue that causes stop error 0x7E in nwifi.sys when you attempt to use a Wi-Fi Protected Access 3 (WPA3) connection. This issue occurs after installing KB4598298 or KB4601315.
