In search of the spirit of Bletchely Park

I’m watching with interest to see how long it takes for the security community to develop an antidote to the latest version of the Gpcode virus which encrypts files using strong encryption.

A week ago, researchers at Kapersky called on the community to help crack the 1024 bit encryption key. That’s a tall order. But I never underestimate the power of the network to harness processing or thinking power to find a solution. During the Second World War, Bletchley Park always managed to bounce back from every major setback.
