Anyone here want to tackle a cryptographic challenge?

I have need of a method to convert an ecrypted document into plaintext. I have an example of an encrypted document and what I feel is the plaintext version of the encrypted document. Can anyone point me in the direction how to unencrypt this information? (I have no previous experience)

encrpyted:

There are no linebreaks in the original.

original (I believe):

[CONFIG]
DefaultDocumentFolder=\
[INSTALLED_PROGRAMS]
TOTAL=1
Program1.DisplayName=Notepad
Program1.Location=F:\WINDOWS\Notepad.exe

Since the first part of the encrypted form is in lowercase, I am not sure when the actual message begins. Does anyone here know how this might work?

I am going to assume that the first 32 characters (lowercase) are an MD5-Checksum.

Now what is it a checksum of? The encrypted or the original? I would have to say its probably the original due to the need to be sure the un-encrypted data is correct.

You can always use my plugin to help with the MD5 stuff!

Thanks for the info about the md5... I was not familiar with md5 enough to recognise it immediately. Anyone have any info on unencrypting the rest?

I guess nobody is interested in decrpyting this one?

Maybe if you would post the program you used to build the cypher, or give at least 2-3 more examples, I could try..

Otherwise, it's pretty hard to find patterns..

I did not build the cypher myself, I am testing to see if it is possible to decrypt the cypher. As for other examples, do you want other encrypted examples? I have them plenty. Do you want other unencrypted examples? I have no more.

Have you tried to figure out which file the MD5 check goes to? The encrypted, or unencrypted?
