    1. Biden won the election.
    2. The Earth is not flat.
    3. Non-dictatorships don't "steal user information".

    If you have evidence of information being stolen, please forward it to your attorney general immediately for investigation and prosecution.

    Nothing that can affect me even if I disable WPA2 on my WiFi router completely and turn it into an open access point.

    For DNS I've been using DOT/DOH for many years now.
    I barely visit any HTTP websites - In fact I don't remember the last time I visited an HTTP website.

    I don't use any plain text Internet protocols either. And this attack doesn't allow you to guess a WiFi password though if the user accesses their WiFi router via HTTP, you can potentially hack the device - only most users rarely if ever do that.

    You know it's not called "stealing" when you consent.
    I agree, but can you really consent in those cases with the lack or obfuscation of information and the power dynamics at play?

    within radio range of a victim can abuse these vulnerabilities to steal user information or attack devices.

    caused by widespread programming mistakes in Wi-Fi products.
    its a norm now....

    Phoronix: FragAttacks: New Security Vulnerabilities Affecting WiFi Devices, 12 CVEs Issued

    FragAttacks was made public on Tuesday as a set of new security vulnerabilities affecting WiFi devices. These are just not some driver-level bugs but rather three of the vulnerabilities are attributed as design flaws in the WiFi standard itself and in turn most devices on the market...
