RSA-768 cracked

Today I read the announcement, RSA-768 is factorized, that is, the prime numbers of which the 232-digit number consists, are known.
English, and original, announcement, and a Dutch comment.

It may have taken a lot of time, but it just shows: nothing is secret. I previously blogged about SHA1 and MD-5 being broken, and actually being used for forgery.

Nice date format

Today is (was) 54 decimal.
