RSA used a second, more obscure NSA tool that made the first one even more crackable. My story is out today.

It's too bad that a SecurID token is used as an illustration, since that RSA encryption technology isn't known to have been impacted by the article's revelation. I have no reason to think you had anything to do with that, of course, Joe. http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2013/09/rsa-advisory-nsa-algorithm/ Not that RSA SecurID hardware tokens aren't also thought to have been compromised. http://arstechnica.com/security/2011/06/rsa-finally-comes-clean-securid-is-compromised/ Great piece, by the way.
