[SOLVED] WPA2 security

Postby AndyMH » Mon Oct 23, 2017 7:21 am

Link below (Which = UK consumer organisation) have reported vulnerabilities in the WPA2 protocol.

https://www.which.co.uk/news/2017/10/wpa2-hack-what-you-need-to-know-and-what-you-need-to-do/?utm_medium=Email&utm_source=ExactTarget&utm_campaign=Weekly_Scoop_211017

Think this link is accessible to non-members. There is guidance, such as it is for win/mac/android users, any thoughts on linux?

Yup... you're late. :wink:
Not only has this been patched in all versions of Mint, and many other versions of Linux, there are also several forum threads on the subject.
