“…it is possible to recover a 104 bit WEP key with probability 50% using just 40,000 captured packets… for 85,000 data packets [the success probability is] about 95%… 40,000 packets can be captured in less than one minute under good condition. The actual computation takes about 3 seconds and 3 MB main memory on a Pentium-M 1.7 GHz…”
OK kids? WEP is bad.
