The attack is on the clients


So every openSUSE machine you have using wifi is vulnerable until we
get patches out. like Marcus said, treating WPA like it's insecure and
relying on SSL and VPN and such in the meanwhile is recommended

I understand that every openSUSE machine is vulnerable till every
machine in the same network is patched. Once a single one is
successfully attacked, they are in. In the network, that is.

Besides, any communication protocol that uses encryption is safe, even
if they get entry to our WiFi: ssh, https... but not, I think, smb, nfs,
most email...
