    @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.

    I don't understand the problem... the author clearly stated that his attack will not work if you stay near your WLAN network.

    *unplugs LAN cable*
    *sits next to router*
    *activates WLAN*
    *still feels safe*
