WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK Cracking With GPUs

//WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK Cracking With GPUs

There have been lots of buzz recently on new Elcomsoft software that utilizes Nvidia GPUs to crack WPA and WPA2 keys. The use of Nvidia GPUs result in cracking the keys 100 times faster! Lots of media picked up on this story, from Slashdot to Gizmodo to The Register. Unfortunately, none of the reporters did their homework, because there has been an FREE open source project that does the exact same thing! That project is called pyrit, and the author even commented on Elcomsoft on the pyrit blog.

I suppose it is good that more media outlets are becoming security aware, and getting stories out to consumers and businesses. What are your thoughts on this matter?
