Is SSL secure communication

Is SSL secure communication? Many of people in IT industry will reply with Yes without any hesitation. So am I.

Today I came across one of the papers published by Chao-Yang Lu at China's University of Science and Technology. Using Shor's algorithm (a non-linear method of factoring composite numbers) and quantum computers they could actually crack SSL communication.

So the time has come for industry to think of a new more secure encryption algorithm.
I have started brainstorming with myself in the search of more secure encryption algorithm, Have you?
