Misguided media on WiFi

Interestingly, there was an article today on WiFi on CNN. Scary how media picks up on the fact that WEP is “flawed” after at least over a year of coverage on the fact that WEP can be cracked. What’s amusing is that they don’t say anything about WPA. Take a look at WiFiNetnews on Nov. 5th here. Hmm. Crackable WPA? Wow.

Word of advice for CNN. If you want to be a respectable news source (not like Fox really is that either), please at least do some research on the topic you’re writing about. The industry knew about the WPA issue and would have been happy to share. Forget fair and balanced, or being the most trusted news source. How about getting all the facts before it airs?
