    Use: URL EncryptedSample BlockSize [options]

  Where: URL = The target URL (and query string if applicable)
         EncryptedSample = The encrypted value you want to test. Must
                           also be present in the URL, PostData or a Cookie
         BlockSize = The block size being used by the algorithm
