+ - RSA devs - Do NOT USE RSA as it may have been backdoored by the NSA-> 2 2

An anonymous reader writes: RSA, the internet security firm, has warned customers not to use one of its own encryption algorithms after fears it can be unlocked by the US National Security Agency (NSA).
In an advisory note to its developer customers, RSA said that a default algorithm in one of its toolkits could contain a "back door" that would allow the NSA to decrypt encrypted data.
It "strongly recommends" switching to other random number generators.
RSA is reviewing all its products.
