I have some files that are encrypted using an unknown key and it's using the CBC method to encrypt the files.
When I XOR two files together the first two bytes are always the same, but different for each files (make sense for each file)
From that is it possible to recover the real key? First bytes of the file :
1a 1a 14 54 08 0b 02 59
When xoring it to a another file using the same key the first few bytes are :
3a e5 1f 01 3a e5 1f 01
Another beginning of xoring with different file
bf fb 22 10 bf fb 22 10
As you can see the pattern repeats for those only 8 bytes. It does that for every file that I xor. Does that mean the key length is 4? And from that how can I recover the text ?
