new AES 256 vulnerability

a new attack has been found against AES - 256

http://www.schneier.com/blog/archives/2009/07/another_new_aes.html

it only works against 10 round AES-256 (which normally has 16
rounds)


(am not overly worried,
still use IDEA when encrypting for diehard pgp2.x e-mailers, and
that has 5 of 8 rounds broken ;-) ))

but as AES is the default gnupg block cipher of choice,
am just bringing it to people's attention here

It breaks 11 rounds of 14.
