Wi-Fi taking up lot of memory [Resolved]

Since the last major upgrade to macOS Mojave, I have the Wi-Fi process taking up a lot of memory and in an exponentially way. Time to time I need to force quit it in Activity Monitor because it takes too much memory (around 5 GB). Did anyone else faced the same issue and was able to resolve?

I am using a MacBook Pro 15-inch 2017 with macOS Mojave 10.14.

Edit: I've recently noticed that the Wi-Fi process uses a lot of memory when connecting to the internet through personal hotspot on iPhone.

Since the last macOS Mojave release (10.14.4), this problem has disappeared. Therefore, it seems that they tackled it; at least it's been a while since I've had this problem.
