    I will certainly be updating all my access points, but... from what I've read so far, that won't matter if the client isn't updated.

    Knowing how crap my phone's manufacture is with releasing updates, I will probably have to run a custom rom now...

    Yup Looks like its Client based not AP based.

    "What if there are no security updates for my router?
    Our main attack is against the 4-way handshake, and does not exploit access points, but instead targets clients. So it might be that your router does not require security updates"


    the video on the site is interesting.
