The Feds can own your WLAN too (Article)

TomsNetworking reports that the FBI can hack a 128 bit WEP wireless connection in 3 minutes. Here is an excerpt from the article, "Millions of wireless access points are spread across the US and the world. About 70% percent of these access points are unprotected—wide open to access by anyone who happens to drive by. The other 30% are protected by WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) and a small handful are protected by the new WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) standard."
