    If your router is less than 4 years old, you are probably affected and can get hacked quickly! You need to turn off WPS right away. If you have a Cisco Linksys router, you can turn WPS off but it is really still on. Big problem!
    Apple wireless routers are fine.

    I thought it was old news - December last year. Still a valid reminder that anything that makes security simpler also makes it weaker - potentially.

    cheers, Paul
