This week's edition of Risky Business is brought to you by a tiny little company called Microsoft, and we'll be taking an in-depth look at some widely reported security issues with WPA TKIP.

While reports of the death of WPA have been greatly exaggerated, the issues discovered by Erik Tews and Martin Beck are certainly worth a closer look. Can the new capability of attackers to inject seven packets into your WPA network lead to a total compromise? Will this research open the floodgates and lead to more serious issues being uncovered?

Assurance.com.au's Neal Wise joins us to discuss. Neal is a real WiFi nut and he's been up to his armpits in this stuff since the reports first surfaced.

We'll also check in with Adam Boileau for a chat about the last week's news headlines: Did you read about Google's incredibly daft Android security lapse yet? Holy smokes!

Microsoft's Peter Watson will also swing by for this week's sponsor interview. This week we chat to Peter about the security of cloud computing.
