    Please don't resort to personal defamations.

    To summarize for an innocent bystander:

    - The attacks you brought forward are in the best case a starting point
    for known plain text attacks. Even DES is secure against this attack,
    since an attacker would need 2^47 chosen plain texts to break the cipher
    via differential cryptanalysis. (Table 12.14 Applied Cryptography,
    Schneier). First, the watermark attack can only distinguish 32
    watermarks. Second, you'd need a ~2.000.000 GB to store 2^47 chosen
    plain texts. Third, I'm talking about DES (designed 1977!), no chance
    against AES.

    - The weaknesses brought forward by me are summarized at
    http://clemens.endorphin.org/OnTheProblemsOfCryptoloop . Thanks goes to
    Pascal Brisset, who pointed out that cryptoloop is actually more secure
    than I assumed.

    If you, Jari, have any arguments left, it's time to state them now.
    Otherwise, have a nice day,
