Is your router safe?

A very interesting and rather scary article by Jon Fingas from Engadget.uk.  A flaw has been been discovered in some router chipsets letting hackers bypass the WPS or WiFi Protected Setup, by using one guess calculated on a series of offline calculations.  One second is all it takes to get in!

The message is clear -  turn off WPS and don't take the easy route, set up your wireless access and device connections manully.
