Decoding Base64 is as easy as breaking ROT-13. It's a simple, one-way
process. Base64 is indeed an *encoding* -- not an encryption, meaning
that there is, technically, nothing to "crack". Just find a Base64
en/decoder and see if what it decodes makes sense or not, that'll tell
you if what you're holding is in fact Base64.
