Submission + - Researchers Break RSA SecurID Token in 13 Minutes (

According to the paper they are scheduled to present this August at the CRYPTO 2012 conference, what makes these exploits extremely usable is the time it takes them to extract the needed information: 13 minutes. As they pointed out, the attacks are efficient enough to be practical.
