The fear of every surveillance society: citizens protecting their own privacy with strong cryptography

Any help appreciated! Crypto Help

Okay so I have this challenge I've been issued and I've never done anything like this before. So I'm looking to the pros for help.

I'm using a program called Encrypt-O-Matic 0.0.2.

There is three lines, Top line: Key
Middle Line: Plain Text
Bottom Line: Cipher Text

My objective is to break the key, to find out what the Ciphered Text is, can anyone help me figure this out? Hints and tips, or even answers would be deeply appreciated, I have to figure this out on my own also, so if anyone could walk me through just a simple way of doing it, it would be a great help to me really!

Below is the Cipher'd text I was given to figure out what it means. This is all I know. It's very long, I'm sorry.

Code: Select all

Re: Any help appreciated! Crypto Help

I assume you know thats binary? Just google binary to ASCII and use one of their decrypters.
Im off, last year of school and all, I had something longer but char limit fucked that up. So yeah, had a good run here. Thanks for the memories. Thanks to the staff and users.

Well, the binary is malformed so I deleted a few numbers to make it correct. This is what I got:
