Hacked! Wi-Fi Security Cracked, Tool to Be Released

Beware the security measures taken when it comes to Wi-Fi: From now on, “multilayer” might be the effect to go for. That’s because two researchers in Germany have cracked the Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) encryption used by wireless routers. And, they plan to issue a tool next week to help other people crack it too.

The guys responsible are part of a self-proclaimed “ethical” hacking group devoted to finding flaws in order to fix them.

There is a fix: Update WPA to the enhanced WPA2. If you’re one of those people who thinks it’s only a matter of time before WPA2 is compromised as well, then adopt the aforementioned multilayer approach that might include intrusion detection and other network-based measures.
