I've made half a dozen site visits to observe users of the software I work on... I'm not sure I've seen a single end user that had two monitors and had both set to the right aspect ratio.

Here's what I worry about : with all of the revelations about what the megalomaniacs at the NSA have been up to (potential backdoors inserted into industry standard NIST algorithms, or even deliberately compromising the design from the outset, etc) exactly how long is it going to be until someone figures out how to exploit those same weaknesses? I reckon there's going to be a point in the next couple of years where anything encrypted with one of those algorithms today might as well be in pain text.

I know someone's going to say "but password encryption should be one way only" (i.e. hashed) and I agree, it should, but this is Adobe we're taking about so it probably isn't. Plus the credit card numbers definitely won't be.

People pretty much always use inappropriate algorithms to hash/encrypt passwords anyway. If you've got a long, completely random password, you might be okay, but 90% of those passwords might as well be plaintext.
