Most videos you see show you how to hack WEP encryption which has become so easy these days that if you have a wireless access point that is protected by WEP you might as well have an open network. A single attacker can crack WEP in under 10 minutes. WPA2 is a different story.
There is a relatively new tool called Reaver that changes things a bit though. The way it works is it brute-forces the WPS pin number for an access point. The WPS pin is an 8 digit number that allows non-tech savvy users to setup their wireless easier. The problem is that an 8 digit number isn't that complex and therefore can be brute-forced rather easily. Check out the latest Tech Chop which shows you how to use Reaver:
So what do you think? Are you going to try this out? Have you already used Reaver successfully? Let us know in the comments!
