Some security algorithms depend on the difficulty on finding large primes. Should we be comforted that it took massive computing power to figure that one out, or vaguely frightened knowing that large primes will continue to be discovered?

You smart people are really interesting.

Just wait for quantum computing. That will (has?) render current encryption useless.

Whee!

Quantum cryptography to the rescue!
