All,

Most WiFi routers have WEP, WPA, and WPA2.

WPA2 was the most secure and the recommendation.

No longer:

But WPA2 comes in a couple variants. Does anyone know if any of them
are unaffected?

Thanks
Greg

I don't know, but I do know that SUSE are working on providing us fast
updates for SLE (which Leap will get equally fast) and Tumbleweed

So this may be addressable on the client end? I hope so!
