In the past, it's been proven that there are major security flaws in the popular wireless standard, 802.11b. Fortunately for us, as time and technology progresses people like to roll out these nifty little things called patches. Enter the Microsoft dragon, so to speak. Of course there are a few catches. The patch is for Windows XP only and is intended for the 802.11i standard. That leads into a second point: the patch is intended for the 802.11i standard, which hasn't been rolled out just yet. Go figure.
