Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A 256k key makes getting the data expensive. If someone wants to badly enough they can get it. The attacks on the phones were on known individuals. Encryption is most useful to prevent trawling attacks - it's too expensive to decrypt all traffic or work around its encryption (you're quite sure there's no keylogger on your machine, right? right?). If your opponent is well resourced and targeting you directly, you're screwed unless you're extremely disciplined.
