moars427023y@Mitch377 The weaknesses are in the Wi-Fi standard itself, and not in individual products or implementations.

This isn't good, especially if you can't do anything about security updates for your own shit. FUCK.
@StefanH no, it’s in the 4-way handshake when establishing the crypto between client and wireless transmitter.
The good news is that this is a fault entirely fixable by patching clients. No need to lift and shift billions of transmitters.
If your office/home setup supports it, now is probably a good time to enable Direct Access in your Windows-fleet, and similar always-on-VPN systems for other platforms, even phones.
@StefanH You could do an old computer/Raspberry Pi variant with open source software
@StefanH Bonus! It’s a cool project!

*unplugs LAN cable*
*sits next to router*
