Modification to Shor's algorithm may mean less powerful quantum computers could crack cryptosystems

A team of researchers affiliated with a host of institutions across China has modified Shor’s algorithm in a way that could allow less powerful quantum computers to crack current cryptosystems. The team describes their modifications and outlines the results of testing it using real-world quantum computers in a paper published on the arXiv preprint server.
