This is NOT the exponent. It's not even prime.

After the number is announced, I'll explain the meaning of "40618373". But only if I'm right
How did you arrive at your prediction?

Do some searching on the web and you'll understand. It's a conspiracy I tell you!

Hope it's not something obvious like squared and xor'd with the bad prime canidate from before.

Why not just encrypt it with DES, probably take 10 days for someone to crack it.

November seems to be our lucky month. Of the 6 mersenne primes found by GIMPS (assuming M40 not composite), 3 were in November.

Hey, the inquirer http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=12732 has published the new.

It seems there is a great expectation.

I wonder who alerted these news agencies about this? I thought we were supposed to let George do the announcing?

That's a very good question.

George, how about next time not leaving the exponent completely out of the server results file, AND out of the found factors file, while exponents in its range are in both?


Another encrypted result, though the encryption scheme is no more rational than the first:

10997553

Could just be a reporter is a GIMPS member. This has been news before, so it's not like it's just poping out into the universe like a 4 quark meson. :) :)

Taking it out of the data files would ring too many bells, making it easier to find if anything. :D

Yep, but it's not in the data files (besides the nofactor file).

EDIT: that by itself isn't a problem, but the correct exponent isn't listed as either done or in progress on the server, when its neighbors are being processed.
