What does the latest attack on WiFi mean to you? 

The headlines were scary, talking about WiFi security being broken. How bad is it?

Not very. The new attack, clever though it is, doesn't allow someone to get onto your network or to read any of your data. It's important, because it means the security mechanisms weren't doing what they were supposed to, but it's not an operational concern yet.

If you like to stay ahead of the game, you can always poke through your wireless settings and make sure you're not using "TKIP", but you'll be OK if you don't.
