WPA isn't safe anymore: How to crack Wi-Fi Protected Access
It is a well known fact that WEP encryption isn't worth much when it comes to protect your wireless network. The protocol has some design flaws that makes its encryption scheme easy to hack. Up to a few months ago, WPA was a secure alternative to WEP. It did a very good job of correcting WEP's weaknesses, but unfortunately, WPA has problems of its own. A flaw was recently discovered in the way WPA initialize its encryption scheme, allowing villains to crack it easily if a weak password is assigned as the WPA shared key. If you are using WPA to secure your WLan, start thinking about switching your encryption scheme to WPA2. In the case where your access point doesn't support the protocol, a simple firmware update will often add the missing feature to it.
I stumbled on a nice video showing someone who used airodump, aireplay, a dictionnary file and aircrack to gain access to a WPA protected Wlan in about 10 minutes. The music is annoying, but the video is worth watching.
