Breaking WEP: a Flash Presentation

About two years ago, I wrote about how to secure your wireless network by changing your router password, your SSID, and turning on WEP. Regarding WEP, I wrote:

This is a 128 bit encryption protocol. It's not supposed to be very secure, but, as my friend said, it's like locking your car--a thief can still get in, but it might make it hard enough to not be worth their while.

Now, some folks have created a flash movie showing just how easy it is to break WEP. Interesting to watch, and has a thumping soundtrack to boot.

Via Sex, Drugs, and Unix.
