SHA-1 broken

I noticed reading this article, and the one on Bruce Schneier’s blog, that the only source backing up Bruce Schneier on this SHA-1 crack is Bruce Schneier. Bruce, Bruce. Is that responsible security? Here’s a guy that preaches responsibility about security, and all this SHA-1 crack talk with no backup source is just stirring up FUD.

I believe him, but it makes me wonder what would happen if someone believed me.

OK, here’s my big announcement of the day: I broke 2048 bit RSA. I discovered a technique to factor very large primes using my quantum computer. Oh yeah, it’s all detailed in my upcoming paper.. which you can’t get.
