MUX

.mux files are encrypted .ogg files and are typically used for custom track music. They use a simple, custom stream cipher based on a 16-byte key: a very long key is generated from the 16-byte key, and then every byte of the input file is xor'd with the corresponding byte in the long key.

byte magic[9] = "NadeoFile"
byte version = 1
int32 keySalt
byte data[]

Decryption

First, the 16-byte decryption key is determined as follows:

key = md5(pack(keySalt) + "Hello,hack3r!")    // Hello, d3veloper :)

where pack() returns the bytes of its argument in little endian order, and the string is encoded as ASCII. Then, the data is decrypted as follows:

void Decrypt(byte[] data)
{
    for (int i = 0; i < data.Length; i++)
    {
        data[i] ^= GetKeyStreamByte(i);
    }
}

byte GetKeyStreamByte(int pos)
{
    return rol(key[pos % 16], (pos / 17) % 8);
}

byte rol(byte input, int amount)
{
    return (byte)((input << amount) | (input >> (8 - amount)));
}
