    Hacker Shows How Cloud Could Wash Out Wireless Security:mad:

    A hacker claims he's used Amazon's cloud services to bust open SHA-1, a wireless network security standard, and he says he'll be demonstrating his process at an upcoming Black Hat get-together.

    Be interesting to see what he comes out with. Says he cracked "a password of between one and six characters in about 49 minutes". My password is 33 characters, might take him a bit longer.

    Doesn't matter how big the pc is, it's still just brute force. Brute-forcing a 64bit hexadecimal key will still take a long time :)

    What We really need is some cheap device (or service built into tomato :)) that acts as a home radius server tbh.

    yes - but registering to that network would be quite a challenge for the beginners.
    it would then take an administrator to install a wireless network on a simple laptop
