Latest firmware
To protect yourself, as a user, make sure you have updated all your Wi-Fi capable devices, including phones, tablets, laptops, IoT smart devices, and Wi-Fi access points and routers, to the latest firmware version I would suggest to check firmware versions constantly and update it, it will keep us secure and increase then performance of the device

Updates
Most users should be safe, but they should check that their devices have the more recent software updates Obviously that is what it comes down, keep the devices up to date with the latest patches

Base station
potentially leaving some device communication vulnerable if the hotspot base station remains vulnerable, That makes sense, base station is part of star topology, once it is compromised whole communication is compromised

allowing the attacker to eavesdrop on a limited amount of wireless data I wonder what indicates limited amount of data, once they eavesdrop then they have the data.
