A more readable version is on:

Wi-fi security flaw 'puts devices at risk of hacks'

Looks like a game of handshake replay to weaken or zero the WiFi session

But then also, who has 'trusted' WiFi or networks against malicious

service providers snooping for monetary gain?...

One to discuss this Thursday!
