To your information:

Vulnerability Note VU#228519
Wi-Fi Protected Access II (WPA2) handshake traffic can be manipulated to 
induce nonce and session key reuse

Dear friends,

if you work with open access to access-points, like all Community 
Networks should do, you have no problem.

If you need encryption, normally we don't need it, you can use 
end-to-end encryption for this specific transfers.

greetings, willi
