We obtain a lower bound on the linear complexity profile of the power generator of pseudo-random numbers modulo a Blum integer. A different method is also proposed to estimate the linear complexity profile of the Blum-Blum-Shub generator. In particular, these results imply that lattice reduction attacks on such generators are not feasible.
