Only takes 1 minute to crack the WPA wireless network encryption

WiFi Crack in 1 minuteNothing is unbreakable but only 60 seconds? Come on! But let’s start from beginning. Japanese duo Toshihiro Ohigashi and Masakatu Morii researchers not musicians have found a way to break the encryption of data sent over Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) in about 1 minute. It was not so long ago when two other experts for security encryption managed to crack WPA encryption of data in 12 to 15 minutes, so breaking the Wi-Fi protection is no surprise but the speed is, and it is new world record. And of course we are talking about the WPA encryption because about the WEP protection no one talks anymore and can be cracked by any kid with little help from uncle Google.

Designed attack with the new way of breaking the encryption for one minute gives to the potential hackers uninterrupted reading of your encrypted information between your computer and your router until the attack ends.
