NSA is tasked with keeping information secure for at least 25 years,
all the recent warning means is they think it is likely that a
feasible quantum attack can be achieved within thirty or forty years.
One can speculate what prompted the warning.

Ironic since they've been making it difficult to make things secure by
default. Wonder if OPM used COTS equipment.
