TapWPA/TKIP broken

For those of you with Wireless Internet systems at home who have just got around to not using WEP encryption because it was seriously broken, I’m afraid you can’t rest there. It has been announced in Japan that it is possible to break WPA/TKIP encryption in under a minute. Not in a way that can discover the key but enough to insert bogus messages into the stream and compromise your traffic.

So, if your hardware has the capability, and that is always the problem, switch over to WPA/AES or WPA2 as soon as possible.
