Cite even one. There are many articles out there that say it can be
cracked. No doubt about it, but it is a couple of orders of magnitude
tougher than WEP (which should take a beginner about 15 minutes). If you
change your keys _frequently_ (more frequently than practically anybody
would, manually) WPA should be quite secure. That's why you can make a
secure network based on WPA.
