yet another argument against cloud computer.

Or rather, another for the need for a bit more stringent security when dealing with the cloud.

Wish the article had been more clear on 2 points. First, is this WPA or WPA2? I'm assuming WPA which makes it not *quite* as disconcerting. And second, how long were the passwords? I note that in the SHA-1 crack mentioned in the article the passwords were from 1 to 6 characters. If the WPA crack is against passwords of similar length then again it's not quite as disconcerting.

But we need to get the word out to use the best encryption & longest passwords you can.
