Hack this encrypted sql file

Hi. I made a tool to backup my database data into sql files while encrypting the content. Below is the encrypted file data I hope someone can try to hack.

Code: Select all
-- Sun Mar 07 12:58:25 GMT 2010
DELETE FROM DATASTORE;
efe87db7ca1ffbb86360ad9b2eb78cd246e25ea5cbc7b2c40975c3b38eb6a7db2e293899b7818c9fb482b41059251a7ba75cce3cd6812d97eeef3eba97fd52909d871c423b53e49cc03d9cb58a7113e5


It's simply sql statements. The portion to hack is from "efe87 ..." onwards.This is the encrypted content. If you manage to decrypt it, it's an sql insert statement.

I am using AES encryption and the data as you can see above is in hex strings. I would like to know how secure my above encrypted sql backup file is.

Thanks.

If you used AES encryption we won't be able to crack it unless you used a weak password.

well you can buy many "cheap" Crays and try to crack it.
Unfortunately my VLA is working on something else.(Don't ask, is not going to get done before you do it yourself)

Is there a way to check if these hex strings are really secured by some form of encryption ?

Most hex editors show the an ASCII version of the code if it can find any. If you put your hex code into such an editor, and could make sense of what it spelled out, then it's not encrypted.

Hi. Thanks for the replies. I tried to convert the hex data into ascii and it makes totally no sense at all. All filled with '?' and weird symbols. Should be save.
