Default Record ECM factor found by Prime95

Posted by George on the GIMPS mailing list:

This not only completes the factorization of M997, which had been the second smallest Mersenne number without a known factor, at 57 digits it also breaks the record for the largest factor ever found by ECM! Congratulations, Bruce Dodson!
