+ - Discrete Logarithm problem solved : Time to drop some crypto methods ? 2 2

An anonymous reader writes: From the article :

Researchers at the Laboratoire Lorrain de Recherches en Informatique et ses Applications (CNRS/Université de Lorraine/Inria) and the Laboratoire d'Informatique de Paris 6 (CNRS/UPMC) have solved one aspect of the discrete logarithm problem. This is considered to be one of the 'holy grails' of algorithmic number theory, on which the security of many cryptographic systems used today is based. They have devised a new algorithm that calls into question the security of one variant of this problem, which has been closely studied since 1976.

Real computer scientists don't program in assembler. They don't write in anything less portable than a number two pencil.
