How long before this turns up in airports and Starbucks? Especially with the new libpng exploit available.

My hope is this will really drive a nail into the heart of 802.11b and hasten the move to 802.11g (and beyond?).

Kernel_killer, you have any thoughts on this hack?

Looks like the 802.11i security is no longer the point of exploit. A friend of mine came back from DC talking about that pic showing up on almost every laptop in DC. Now I know how it was done. :icon_smil I'd post the pic, but since you would have to be 18 or older (depending on state) I won't. It's on that second link anyways.

My thoughts would be this will be the 2nd generation phishing. Inject fake bank, credit card pages claiming that a user's account needs to be updated, and the responce sent back to the root of the injection. Looks like a project that will have to be checked out, but with some serious tcpdumping.
