WEP is dead

WEP has been deprecated as a way to protect a wireless network a long ago, yet I still see a lot of people (and even worse, of business places) that leave their network wide open or use a weak WEP encription.

Recently a new, faster way to crack WEP has been discovered: The Register interviewed the authors of a tool that breaks WEP in minutes.

Let this be a spur for sys-admins to secure their networks!
