DCing algorithm
Looks like we have a new data master in here. cool

Thanks to forum posts sharing the knowledge of what encryption is used, I was able to recently also implement the decryption in a Scheme dialect called GNU Guile. Posting here, in case anyone needs it:

(library (decrypt)
  (export decrypt-u8 decrypt-file)
    (except (rnrs base) let-values)
    (only (guile)
          lambda* λ
    (prefix (logging) log:)
    (ice-9 binary-ports)
    (ice-9 textual-ports)))

(define decrypt-u8
  (λ (u8 pos secret-vector payload-offset)
    "Decrypt a character based on its position, a payload offset, and secret. "
    (let* ([key-length (vector-length secret-vector)]
            ;; For each byte to decrypt use one character of the secret. Go back
            ;; to the first character of the secret again, when the key has no
            ;; more characters left. Alternative explanation: Use the secret as
            ;; a ring.
            (remainder (- pos payload-offset) key-length)])
      ;; Output a decrypted character.
      ;; substract from the encrypted u8 or byte the byte of the corresponding
      ;; character of the secret.
      (- u8
          (vector-ref secret-vector pos-in-key))))))

(define decrypt-file
  (lambda* (#:optional (fport (current-input-port))
            (secret "odBearBecauseHeIsVeryGoodSiuHungIsAGo")
            ;; for some reason (obfuscation?) the first 123 bytes are
            ;; trash
            (num-ignored-bytes 123)
            (verbose #f))
    "Provided a file port, read byte after byte, decrypting
them, until all bytes are decrypted and the file ends."
    (let ([secret-vector
            (map char->integer
                (string->list secret)))])
      ;; Write decrypted bytes to a string, avoiding using string-append for
      ;; each character.
        (λ (string-port)
          ;; For some reason (obfuscation of the encryption algorithm?) the
          ;; first n bytes of a data file are trash.
          (log:debug "skipping trash bytes at the start of the file")
          (log:debug "trash bytes:" (get-bytevector-n fport num-ignored-bytes))

          (let iter ([char-index num-ignored-bytes] [u8 (get-u8 fport)])
            (log:debug "char-index:" char-index #:verbose verbose)
            [(eof-object? u8)
              (log:debug "end of file reached" #:verbose verbose)
              (put-string string-port "")]
            ;; Otherwise decrypt the character.
              (let ([decrypted-char
                    (decrypt-u8 u8 char-index secret-vector num-ignored-bytes)])
                (log:debug "read u8:" u8 "character:" (integer->char u8) "decrypted:" decrypted-char #:verbose verbose)
                (put-char string-port decrypted-char))
              (iter (+ char-index 1)
                    (get-u8 fport))])))))))

Note, that the code is licensed AGPLv3 though. I am currently using it in a project at lf2-data-decrypt (URL might change later.)

Perhaps this can serve as an example for others when implementing it themselves.
