PGP key size in Ubuntu


Hi everyone.

Is it true that PGP keys in Ubuntu can't have a key bigger than 1024bits? and that 4096bits is just a label you can see in Seahorse key manager?

I've heard this is to let government be able to break the key (clearly, by brute forcing).

Is that true?

If that's true, what's the cure?
