Apparently, a team of researchers working in Europe and Japan have cracked a 307-digit Mersenne number using the special number field sieve method developed by cryptology professor Arjen Lenstra. The scientists think that it will be a cinch to crack 1024-bit RSA encryption using the same method. The security industry shudders!
