The sheer amount of ignorance displayed in your post is staggering, to say the least. To bruteforce 128-bit AES encryption, you need to check 2^128 (340,282,366,920,938,463,463,374,607,431,768,211,4 56) different keys. If you had a computer that could check a BILLION BILLION ( 10^18 = 1000 000 000 000 000 000) keys a second -- which is many many many orders of magnitude beyond what anyone can do, no matter how many computers or CUDA graphics cards they assemble -- it would still take 10^13 years to check all of them. This is one THOUSAND times longer than the age of the universe.

Even this is minute and laughably small if we talk about 256-bit AES.

Please don't speak about things you clearly have absolutely no idea about.
