Aircrack-ng on the iPhone

Well, as far as I can tell, it hasn't happened.  Yet.  But a proof-of-concept of the idea has been made, and now I really want it to happen.  This could be the most devestating attack against wireless networks everywhere; WEP would be made virtually worthless.  Anyone with an iTouch or iPhone would be able to tear apart the code in a few minutes and hop on the network.  I don't hold out any hopes of the aircrack-ng version being able to crack WPA, at least not yet, because of the resources it would require.  But someone needs to step up the plate and get this working.  Trust me, the moment it gets onto the internet, I'm going to get it.  Updates to come.
