Re: Garbage at the end of file (General questions)

Thank you for your quick reply !

It would be Ok if I got the right data plus some garbage. For example, the following would be perfectly acceptable:

(Original)
Somedata=1234

(Decrypted)
Somedata=1234 $&^ $^

The problem is that I get something like:

Somedata= $&^ $^

As I understand from your reply, if the before-encryption-data do not align with the 8-byte buffer, then the last 8 bytes I get from the decryption are garbage. Is that correct ? Would it make any difference if I knew what the old software is padding the buffer with ?

Thank you for your time,
