New way to crack WPA on wireless networks

Everything in security is just a matter of time, right? Well, a couple of researchers - one of which is the author of the Aircrack-ng tool that I've covered a lot over the years - have found a new way to crack the WPA TKIP key in a just a few minutes without using a dictionary attack (previously the only way to crack it). Reaffirms the arms race we're mired in. Pretty interesting stuff. This could open up a whole new frontier in wireless hacking.
