fyi...

saw this posted on Google+:
Nebadon Izumi originally shared:

"The attack can extract full 4096-bit RSA decryption keys from laptop
computers (of various models), within an hour, using the sound
generated by the computer during the decryption of some chosen
ciphertexts."

fantastic! :/

So ya this basically just rendered all encryption virtually useless!
