Hello,

As you might have heard, recently a serious WPA2 (wifi) vulnerability has been discovered.
I'm wondering if there might be some concerns with our Spark

At least if you are using an actual  iOS device you should be fine soon because the vulnerability is fixed in the actual iOS (public) beta which will be released soon. On Android you can only hope that you will see an update for your device depending on your model/carrier etc. or that dji brings up a fix on their side.

From what i can see it should be safe if one device (client or AP) is patched, seeing both sides patched would be your best option but a patched phone/tablet should do the job.

With regard to the Spark this issue is rather academic and without practical relevance. 1. The hacker would need to be very nearby and know about your flight beforehand and 2. The content of the communications between the Spark and the RC or your mobile device are of no interest at all and therefore will not be a target.
