And didn't Intel just announce here recently they were making their
hardware drivers "open source" for the "...betterment of the Linux
community..."?

Me calls BS on Intel

On or before June 22, David Maynor and Johnny Cache told reporters
about
their wireless hardware crack, and promised to reveal it at Black Hat.
When Black Hat came, they didn't reveal the crack or the hardware.
One
scribe said it was because of legal heat from Apple.

Here we are, almost 2 months later, and still nothing has been
revealed.
For all anyone knows, millions of people are vulnerable to the
exploit,
but nobody seems to know except for the researchers and a couple of PR
firms milking it for all it's worth.

Has anyone heard anything at all definitive? Who the manufacturer is,
what drivers are at risk, anything?
