Blowfish cracked!?

Blowfish, the encryption algorithm designed by legendary privacy advocate Bruce Schneier, has been cracked — at least according to the popular Fox sitcom “24.”  On a recent 24 episode they claim they discovered a backdoor to the algorithm.  Of course I’m sure this is bogus as the algorithm has been dissected by countless mathematicians since it’s conception in 1993 — still funny none the less.

The transcript of the episode mentioned can be found here.

Also, I loved this headline Skanky Garofalo Can’t Crack Blowfish on 24.  Janine Garofalo is the first analyst on 24 who tries to crack the encryption and can’t.  Hilarious….
