Lets re-write this:

Computer scientists in Japan say they've developed a way to read and falsify certain short data packets when TKIP is in use. They haven't yet been able to retrieve the WPA encryption key.

Moral of the story is - use AES rather than TKIP. (But then you knew that already didn't you?)
