Shame this site does not have https <sigh>

It's something I've been looking at for a while. It may well be implemented after the next still in development SMF upgrade becomes available.

It doesn't look as if the WPA2 stack on Windows is vulnerable. Anything based on wpa_supplicant/hostapd will be. This includes Linux and Android. Patches started trickling out yesterday. I don't know about Apple, but it's likely their products are vulnerable.
Apples gear is patched in the latest betas which they are rolling out soon. Netgear routers are not vulnerable unless in bridge mode then they are a client which causes the issue. The problem is so many older devices like TV's, blu-ray players etc may never get patched, also Android phones may take months to patch 41% are vulnerable as of now. Google has to make the patch then it has to go to the network providers to be tested then incorporated into their firmware on Android phones that are not bought sim free but come bought from places like Vodafone etc who also add their own layer of bloat. I'm guessing many Android phones wont see a patch at all like older iPhones and loads of older tablets too and old linux devices which are like Android the most vulnerable and most TV's set top boxes etc are Linux based. As to tall the IoT gadgets good luck with them  :slap:

It does appear to require a huge amount of computing resource to actually achieve this, so unless your next door neighbour has a supercomputer tucked away somewhere it it doesn't look like an attack is imminent.

Perhaps changing your wifi key/password once a week and making it really really long will be of some help.

In the meantime I guess ethernet rulez :eek4:

Who knows, this may even put the boot into Smart Meters rollout  :evil:

Most reports I've seen suggest that connecting to sites with properly set up https is reasonably safe...

Not sure whose problem that is for this site, except that it's not mine  ;D
