    As long as KRACK cannot see Pre-Shared WPA2 password then I am not worrying. Furthermore, both WiFi access point and client have to be unpatched for this hack to work.

    ... AND the attacker has to be both quicker and nearer to the end point to override the signal coming from your router. Long shot at best.

    So you folks in Apartments and Stacked Living are really the only ones that need to worry (next time you wake up in the middle of the night, look around to see which neighbors lights are on, that is probably the guy you need to worry about).

    You'd better watch out riding around with your Squeezebox Touches

    Guess I better remove the WiFi cards before somebody takes over my Thunderbird while I'm driving down the road!

    Not the first time WPA2 has been cracked.

    I like how this made the news but WPA2 was cracked by other methods long before this and one could be a block away to do them. The reasons this one bothers me even less is because they have to be awfully close to pull it off and the other reason is that I ALWAYS run my wireless lan on a different subnet than my lan with no access to the lan from the wlan. If I truly needed a secure wireless connection I would run my wireless in a VPN tunnel across the wireless link. The Opera browser has a VPN widget built in and is very handy while traveling with a laptop.

    I use wired connections as much as possible and only do so with my Squeeze ecosystem. I would never have thought to expose my server via a wireless link. I only use wireless to stream movies over a roku or stream internet radio as neither of those need access to my lan.

    It puzzles me why people are just now worried about security over wifi, it never really existed without VPN

    Itĺs just not very convenient to not use wireless remote control. The most important reason to use a Squeezebox for many users.

    Probably because it never really made the news plus it was the "Topic de Jour" as it is now with all the hackings of Target, Home Depot, Equifax in the news recently.

    But you are correct, Ethernet everything one can plus keep Servers off the WiFi network. I am shocked every time I monitor what people are doing over unsecured WiFi at McDonald's or the local Coffee House.
