Submission + - Wireless WPA Cracking As A Service

An anonymous reader writes: Moxie Marlinspike, a security researcher well known for his SSL/TLS attacks, has published a WPA cracking service. The WPA Cracker website states: "WPA-PSK networks are vulnerable to dictionary attacks, but running a respectable-sized dictionary over a WPA network handshake can take days or weeks. WPA Cracker gives you access to a 400CPU cluster that will run your network capture against a 135 million word dictionary created specifically for WPA passwords. While this job would take over 5 days on a contemporary dual-core PC, on our cluster it takes an average of 20 minutes."
