NVIDIA GeForce Graphics Cards Used to Break WIFI Passwords



With graphics cards such the GeForce GTX 280 and parallel brute force based algorithms coded in CUDA (GPGPU techniques), WiFi’s WPA (RC4 based) and WPA2 (AES based) encryption systems are now crackable and the time to crack them compared to CPU based algorithms is reduced by a factor of 100 (or 10,000 %).
