    "Security researchers say they've developed a way to partially crack the Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) encryption standard used to protect data on many wireless networks."

    I'm not an expert by any stretch, but it seems there are a lot of caveats and a lot of information missing, so I'm not worried yet. :doubt:

    Thoughts?

    Hope that your wireless devices support it and switch to WPA2

    TKIP was always just a temporary fix. This was expected.
