if you're willing to spend 10 hours brute forcing my wireless key, then i guess you deserve access to my copy of Starcraft 2 and Microsoft Office.
Warning heeded but if you have nothing worth stealing, you shouldn't be spending too many late nights awake worrying about this.

a single wep can be cracked in 10 to 20 mins.
a whole neighborhood could be cracked in less than 10 hrs
the fbi has demonstrated 10 min wep cracking, video is available. i remember watching it not too long ago

Apparently there is a commercial version of this attack with a convenient gui.
More ammunition for script kiddies.

Someone posted on another website, a custom built "PC in a briefcase" with 10 mid-range graphics cards and 2 nettwork cards, that could crunch through wpa2-psk personal in less than 30 minutes, using the graphics cards to do the number crunching.
Theres no such thing as a secure wifi, at all. They can all be broken into by someone willing to put the time, money and resources into it.
Yes the "briefcase" was more the size of a small packing crate, but it was portable, if you had a car.
All you can do is make it as hard as possible. Unless I have something someone wants badly, they aren't going to spend 10hrs cracking my wpa2-psk key, they will move on to the guy down the road who is still using WEP64 (idiot).

10 hours? i did it in 15 mins using backtrack to hack mine. And lets face it Wi-Fi is not really secure at all.
And to think of all the people i see in coffee shops with there laptops open typing away without thinking about the security or lack there of. Hacking a "hot spot" is easier then hacking the laptops using it. Think about that next time your out and about. Be smart be safe.edit on 12/29/2011 by GunzCoty because:
