I think this is important enough to warrant it's own thread. A vulnerability has been found in the WPA2 standards for wifi security. This is the standard security you all should be using on your access points/routers. This is also a vulnerability in the standards, not in a proiduct, so it effects everyone using WPA2 regardless of what systems you are using. I should also add that this is a proof of concept. That means researchers have found this flaw and already announced it to manufacterers so they can work on patches before it goes public as not only do we now know it exists, but so do our adversaries so they can now use it to attack targets. Most importantly with this is that it effects more the clients, so laptops, tables, phones and towers etc. you should keep an eye open for patches as of right now from your OS developer as well as your router/hardware developer and apply it as soon as possible.
