and we thought we were safe now

there it goes again - every time we thought we were safe some-one somewhere gets done what is supposed to be not possible and scares the hell out of us and let us go scrambling searching for a solution for a problem we thought we had solved
 
new techniques to crack WEP encryption make it now very easy to crack the WEP encryption that is used in wireless networks and of which the sales- and technical persons told you that it was as safe as it could become because it would need an enormous lot of resources and time from the hacker to crack this. But many organisations haven't migrated because that would ask some investment and they aren't obliged to secure their networks, so why should they invest.
