Client side vulnerability. Wait for Microsoft/Apple to patch. HTTPS browsing is still secure.

in fairness wifi by nature is vulnerable to eavesdropping: it's a broadcast, not some magical two-point tether.

this particular variety of attack is less "WPA2 is compromised!" and more "the firmware we use to do WPA2 is buggy s*** that lets people force-install deliberately useless encryption keys on access points/clients they can get to!"
