Not to get too offtopic here, but my view on this is that it's better to
treat a wep encrypted link as if there were no encryption on it, so to
keep myself from being lazy and trusting wep, I have just turned it off.
Most protocols are capable of using encryption these days and otherwise
you can set up a vpn (or ssh port forwarding) quite easily.
I guess I would rather have a proper sense of insecurity than a false
sense of security. Anyone with me on that or am I just goofy?
