For those who are familiar with this would outrightly say this is old news, actually its a yes and and no. Yes because security researchers have done it late last year under 12-15 minutes. Recently Japanese researchers did it in a mere 60 seconds. Check out the complete story here http://www.networkworld.com/news/2009/082709-new-attack-cracks-common-wi-fi.html So what does this mean to us. Those who are using wireless routers that employ encryption so as not to be accessed by others should NOT use them. Do not use WEP and WEP-TKIP, use WPA and the stronger Advanced Encryption Standard(AES) algorithm or use WPA2. Make sure also that the LAN card would support this.

Yup just like in the movie "Gone in 60 seconds". The way I see it everything is going WiFi pretty soon, so let's just be aware of these things.
