comment Decrypting the password from SHA-512 hash value
I think "You cannot recover the password from the hash." is misleading. I think the fact that if you use a bad hashing method you can recover the password means this opening line should be reworded. To what, I'm not entirely sure. That and I think every other word should link to "How to securely hash passwords", just to make sure to get across the point that this is a solved problem in our field. (The bigger problem is getting developers to do it!)

comment Now that quantum computers have been out for a while, has RSA been cracked?
..., and that in some cases, those 'others' are authors of published works that were bastardized by D-Wave. After reading them, I certainly agree with you about the validity of the content. But I still think it would greatly add to the constitution of the article if there were a wider variety of sources. :-)

@DW And I'm not denying that at all. I'm just saying... imagine you published a paper, and you had 10 refrences (like this post does) and 8 of them were from the same source (like this post does) you'd probably not publish it in your journal. While I'll be the first to admit that posts on a QA site are held to a different standard as professionally submitted articles, I do see how one might question having so much from a single source. I did read some of the articles (before I made my comment) and saw that he was simply passing along the message of others ... continued ...

It is worth noting that all seven of your debunking links come from one man's blog. I'm not disagreeing with you that RSA seems to be safe for now (and the foreseeable future) because I think it is; but seven links from the same source isn't as credible as say... seven links from 4 or 5 different sources.
