WPA/WPA2 broken – VPN Only now

Oct 12 2008

WPA2 is officially broken now… so much for that. Looks like you should exclusively use VPN connections over wifi now.

“Russian security firm Elcomsoft has released software that uses Nvidia GPUs to speed up the cracking of WPA and WPA2 keys by a factor of 100. Since the software allows them to network thousands of PCs, this anouncement effectively signals the death of wireless networking in business networks; any network handling sensitive data should start using VPN encryption on machines connecting over Wi-Fi networks, or stop using these networks altogether.”
