WPA With TKIP Cracked In One Minute

WPA With TKIP Cracked In One Minute

Posted August 27, 2009 at 3:33pm by iClarified
Researchers have found an attack to crack WPA with TKIP security in about one minute, according to a Yahoo News report.

The attack was developed by Toshihiro Ohigashi of Hiroshima University and Masakatu Morii of Kobe University, who plan to discuss further details at a technical conference set for Sept. 25 in Hiroshima.

Last November, security researchers first showed how WPA could be broken, but the Japanese researchers have taken the attack to a new level, according to Dragos Ruiu, organizer of the PacSec security conference where the first WPA hack was demonstrated.

The WPA with AES and WPA2 security systems are still considered relatively safe and users are recommended to switch their routers over to one of these algorithms if they haven't already.
