    I love it "the new attack only requires a single guess at the hardware PIN to collect data necessary to break it". Now all we need a new tool :) Can't wait to get a new software for testing. Reaver is great but it still takes time but a new tool will be even better. Who will be the first to make it?

    A single guess. That's hardly a guess, is it?

    I think the idea of WPS was to make everything simple. And it is! One query and everyone knows your WPA key. Brilliant! The only nagging issue is why we had to replace open wifi networks with WPS system. Both provide same amount of security.
