Major Wi-Fi security flaw discovered

A serious security flaw has been discovered in the Marvell 88W8897A Wi-Fi chip, which is included in a number of mainstream devices.

Security firm Embedi discovered a number of vulnerabilities in the chip’s firmware, and drew attention to the most serious flaw which allows devices to be compromised without any interaction from the owner.

Another bad article heading. The flaw is in a chip, not in WiFi itself.
