**NaturalNews exclusive: US government developing ultimate cyber weapon; Prime-factoring quantum computing makes encryption obsolete**

...

All this is very much a layman's description of the phenomenon of quantum computing, by the way. Physicists will get into far more detail about how qubits might actually work... although technically, nobody really understands quantum computing. The key thing to understand about quantum computing is that a qubit can store its states of zero and one simultaneously. A collection of eight qubits can store 256 variations or "values" simultaneously, unlike a traditional silicon "bit" which can only store one of 256 values at a time.

The upshot of all this, mathematically speaking, is that instead of decryption algorithms being exponentially more complex as the number of encryption digits increases,

**qubits allow decryption algorithms to process the problem in so-called polynomial time**, meaning the problem becomes exponentially easier to solve. (Or, technically, it doesn't become exponentially harder to solve as the number of encryption digits increases.)

If I weren't so lazy, I'd look into it more. Instead, I'm posting here at DC for other people to do the heavy lifting.
