macosx complaining ietf ssid is compromised

don't have time to investigate on my local client, so wondering if it is a known issue. Every minute or so, I receive a warning from macosx as the ietf network (refers to the ssid I'm pretty sure) is compromised. See attached screenshot. (sorry french configured OS). My take it is a bug of MacOSX but wondering if it is known by the NOC and if there is any workaround, since it is pretty annoying.

btw, I removed the SSID from the list of known SSID and the problem did not disappear.

TKIP has been disabled throughout the IETF network. All encryption now uses AES, and the draconian measures that the WPA/TKIP standard require are no longer an issue.

I am closing this ticket. However, if you see this problem again please re-open this ticket.

And, of course, feel free to open another ticket if you have any network issues with the IETF network.
