For the truly paranoid, I've validated the link above is legit ;)

I've asked our security team to help address the concern. Stay tuned.

Our security folks say "nothing new" - the exploit requires weak infrastructure security which no production network should allow. Normal best-practice security hygiene protects against it.

My concern is a have a lot of Customers in the hospitality business that run unencrypted Wi-Fi for ease of use of guests. Does Chameleon put these Customers at risk?

The exploit relies on well known default passwords, so good password practices on the controller take care of that.
