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 %).

    The original article stated a speedup of 10,000%, which is 100 times, not 10,000 times. Please correct this.
