    Anyone hear about the new wireless vulnerability?  If so, you have any supporting documentation that explains what was found and a how to doc?
    FYI, here is a snip from the Reuters report
    NEW YORK (Reuters) - The security system for the leading wireless system that links office computer systems is vulnerable to hacker attacks via a quicker and easier method than previously known, a trade group said on Friday. 
    While computer security experts had previously uncovered weaknesses in Wi-Fi, a standard for wireless data communication also known as 802.11b, the latest discovery is being treated with more concern because it is more feasible and takes less time to carry out.
