Mathematicians could be on the verge of solving two separate million dollar problems. If they are right - still a big if - and somebody really has cracked the so-called Riemann hypothesis, financial disaster might follow. Suddenly all cryptic codes could be breakable. No internet transaction would be safe.

still, i'm not going to start keeping my money under the mattress due to this. i think they are rather overstating the hazard as it applies to online transactions.
