This is definitely an issue with encryption. Cracking various encryption
methods is really only a question of time, computing power, and some luck.
Heck, I thought DES was cracked in 1998!

So, yes, Dantz is investigating other encryption options, but, in the
meantime, definitely restrict access to your data!
