Wi-fi security system is 'broken'

Quote:
More holes have been picked in the security measure designed to protect the privacy and data of wi-fi users.

The latest attack lets criminals defeat firewalls and spy on where someone goes and what they do online.

It comes after a series of other attacks that, experts say, have left the basic protection in wi-fi comprehensively "broken".

But compatibility issues mean that many will have no alternative but to use the much weakened protection system

Isn't this just a recap about WEP sucking?

WPA-2 is still virtually uncrackable without a supercomputer availible to brute-force the key.

I'm guessing so. I mean I use MAC filtering and WEP at the moment and I've never found it an issue. Sure its not totally secure but my wireless card doesn't support WPA-2 as far as I am aware.
