WPA crack

Just a note that the WPA vulnerability recently discovered only applies if
you use TKIP encryption. If you stick with AES (support for which is
mandatory in WPA2), you should still be safe.

AES is a very strong cipher. TKIP was only ever intended as an interim
measure, because it was primarily designed to be easily implementable (with
a firmware upgrade) on the same hardware that was already running WEP,
which was known to be crap.
