comment Injecting salt into PyCrypto KDF - useful?
Thanks @D.W. - I had a quick look for them when I posted the question (on a tablet), but I can't find them now - I'll keep looking and post if I come across them. I suspect it may have originally come from a resource (for example) that suggests putting the salt before or after the password being hashed.

As others will undoubtedly point out, if we do not know what the message says (or contains) we have no way of proving or even indicating what the decrypted message is. It is likely that we will have a set of statistically probable decryptions, but that it will remain impossible to verify correctness.
