Re: Status on WiFi Protected Setup (WPS) vulnerability

said by planet:

Wondering if vendors are still selling routers that are vulnerable to the Reaver Hack via WPS? or are router's native firmware now capable of utilizing WPS versus disabling that feature?

The only reasonably safe method is to totally disable it (if your router offers that option, and if it actually works). Anything else (even if your router vendor swears that their WPS implementation is now safe) is just waiting for the other shoe to drop.
