Hacker cracks AirPort Express streaming technology

The Norwegian hacker made famous for cracking DVD encryption says he has cracked Apple’s AirPort Express. ” Jon Lech Johansen has revealed the public key that Apple AirPort Express, a wireless networking protocol, uses to encrypt music sent between iTunes and a wireless base station,” reports CNET “In a double whammy for Apple, Johansen also wrote a program called JustePort, allowing software other than Apple iTunes to stream music to AirPort Express. As a result of Johansen’s work, it’s now only a matter of time before other popular software is capable of streaming music to the AirPort Express. Until now, a copy of iTunes 4.6 was required.”
