This is a flaw, which might pertain to PUPPY distros.

Edited: Reword the link statement and the Subject

This appears to only affect peer to peer use rather than how you would normally be using wifi...ie machine to router.

As such its hard to exploit like most of these kinds of 'vunerabilities' even in peer to peer mode. Also the attacker would have to be running the machine you are connected too.

Updates will filter through but seems little need for a mass update frenzy.
