"A German IT expert has cracked his neighbour's W-Lan password within 20 minutes. To perform this computer-intensive attack, he relied on a service provided by Amazon ..."
They say that Amazon leases its supercomputing power for 28 cents per minute to everyone on a remote basis, i.e. as a "cloud" service. -- The engineer/hacker/cracker says he believes he can still improve the software, such that the computation will in the future take only 6 minutes, which would correspond to less than 2 dollars per password.
FWIW, this was a WPA password, and he went public about the problem in order to alert system admins etc. -- not to promote criminal activities.
Just to let you know how dangerous this world has become :-]
So, be careful out there, use the right technology, and make sure you have good passwords!
Cheers and happy computing to everyone!
