Fujitsu Cracks Next-Gen Cryptography Standard

Fujitsu and its Japanese partners have taken 148 days to carry out a cryptanalysis that had been estimated to take hundreds of thousands of years.


What surprises me here is that they had the estimates =completely= wrong. Development in all sectors is getting faster and faster. Maybe it is going so fast that predictions have become useless, became impossible.
