comment AES in ECB mode weakness
Thanks for your comment Thomas. I'll consider what you said about hitting ECB issues once we use the same key to encrypt 2 different blocks of plain text. On the other hand, we are not storing the keys ourselves. The encrypted text that we save is sent by clients to our server, and it's already ciphered. I just wanted to know what an attacker could possibly do if he gets hold of a database with tons of entries encrypted with AES in ECB mode in order to decrypt that information (and if such a thing is feasible).
