So are MacsBook’s WiFi Vulnerable or Not?

Apparently, the demonstration at BlackHat that involved a MacBook and WiFi was “misrepresented.” They used a MacBook and a third-party WiFi USB card to demonstrate how easy it was to compromise a laptop. However, they originally said something along the lines of “Apple is vulnerable to this too.” Now they are saying Apple isn’t vulnerable to this problem. Are they or not? Read the insightful commentary on Digg.

My take on this: it is only a matter of time before someone discovers some vulnerability in Apple’s WiFi. Or anything else in the Mac for that matter. Practicing safe computing is a good idea no matter what type of computer you run.
