Submission + - WPA2 vulnerability found (networkworld.com)

Linker3000 writes: NetworkWorld is reporting that a vulnerability has been found in the WPA2 wireless security protocol that could allow man-in-the-middle attacks. The so-called "Hole 196" vulnerability stems from a weakness in one of the keys (the Group Temporal Key, or GTK) used to protect broadcast data because the GTK mechanism cannot detect address spoofing or data forgery.
