Chances are the content of this article traversed some wireless network prior to being displayed on the device you are using (or prior to being printed out for you hard copy purists).  However, today we learned the WPA2 (WiFi Protected Access II), is vulnerable to key reinstallation attacks.  For the past 14 years, WPA2 has been considered the industry standard for maintaining a secure wireless network for personal and enterprise connectivity. What makes this newly released vulnerability different than the recent security headlines is this attack is not leveraging unpatched software or a company’s implementation of technology.  This attack actually exposes flaws in the protocol specification (standard) itself; meaning all implementations of the standard are (likely) also vulnerable.
