This cipher is a new take on the well-known Vigenère cipher. It has been designed to fix its "brother's" weaknesses. Can you find another weakness?

Hi everybody, At first sight this seems to be a fairly simple challenge, but the opposite is true. It is a really hard one. I eventually managed to solve it, after 3 weeks trying several ways of attack and a lot of frustration.
In my opinion it should be a level 2 challenge, instead of level 1. Until today only 4 other people solved it, and probably more are still working on it. What do you think about the level? Looking forward to opinions of others. Silva

Hello silva, thank you, for pointing this out. We looked into this and came to the same conclusion as you did. We have raised the diffuculty of this challenge to level 2. Kind regards, seafischer

Hi Seafisher, Thank you for your response. I think it's a good decision. It would be nice and correct to adjust also the points to a level 2 challenge for those who have solved it so far. Thanks, Silva
