@rom1v Ou bien ils doivent faire du chiffrement de bout en bout, ce qui est de toute façon nécessaire, même si WPA2 était incassable.

@rom1v In the worst case, this is no worse than unencrypted wifi. And AFAIK a decryption attack only works againat WPA1, which already has other unfixable problems.

This article is blown out of proportion.

If you use application-level encryption (HTTPS, SSH, etc) there is no reason to worry about this. You can keep uaing wifi.

@stsp @stsp "In the worst case, this is no worse than unencrypted wifi."

Exactly. "No worse" is still quite bad IMO.
