Wasn't WPA cracked a couple months ago?

I don't care because I treat all wireless as unsecure. Apparently you
treat it as secure, so you have to keep track of these things.

WPA was partially cracked, but not WPA2. For best security, run WPA2 &
RADIUS server. I use WPA2 & preshared key. However, should you manage
to break WPA2, you still have to get through my firewall, which allows
only SSH (with key, not password) and OpenVPN.
