And I thought monitoring WiFi devices was pretty easy with current probe management frames. With this it will be even easier to follow unique set of apps walk around since all of this have to be sent in clear.

Then for exploiting we just need one vulnerable application and then magnify a signal and BAM! We get to crash (or takeover) whole neighborhood worth of devices in one smooth swipe.

I just don't see anyway to make this secure. Then again people are constantly using open public WiFi connections and sending sensitive information over them.
