    Default Help With Decrypt A value from a key

    Hi, I got a the key: "HK8N99LQ" and the
    value: "THBiUURtaHdCSDlFRWYva1VSRm5QUCtWN2NnditldVE2RnhEa zdLNHlwZEZZQnlxU0xDQ3Zlc1ZrV1RNNHgyamcyNXgvUFUxQk1 UQVpPLzJTVDZnR3ZIUTZLbjRoemo4aU9ORVdKZ21kdktjOEZqZ UM0bkwvd29hbWM3bXQ2cXcvbjZRaUdtZDU5ZWtUSlFMZm1DUHZ aL284OGdqd1JJTGNvQzczb1dISTNScFhSc3VDemRRVTM2bmNic lM4b2FuTWM5RUE2UnUvL1RoT0tSOGFScDltSHZaY2R2MHNQS2x COGZOOUkzazcvVmtCZ2FpTnNwZ3p4aGVBWkJtUWJzN1M2YnAyM DJvMXFUMHdCYk9MUG5vNUNOaEtrVTZCZ2RJWTh3dzNqMDR6VVk vMTNNUW0reGtrUT090" from http://api.cashcow.co.il/

    to decrypt the code in c# the website provide this code:

    public static string Decrypt(string app_token, string signed_request)
                byte[] keyArray;
                //get the byte code of the string
                byte[] toEncryptArray = Convert.FromBase64String(signed_request);
                // app token
                string key = app_token;
                //if hashing was used get the hash code with regards to your key
                MD5CryptoServiceProvider hashmd5 = new MD5CryptoServiceProvider();
                keyArray = hashmd5.ComputeHash(UTF8Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(key));
                //release any resource held by the MD5CryptoServiceProvider
                TripleDESCryptoServiceProvider tdes = new TripleDESCryptoServiceProvider();
                //set the secret key for the tripleDES algorithm
                tdes.Key = keyArray;
                //mode of operation. there are other 4 modes. 
                //We choose ECB(Electronic code Book)
                tdes.Mode = CipherMode.ECB;
                //padding mode(if any extra byte added)
                tdes.Padding = PaddingMode.PKCS7;
                ICryptoTransform cTransform = tdes.CreateDecryptor();
                byte[] resultArray = cTransform.TransformFinalBlock(
                                     toEncryptArray, 0, toEncryptArray.Length);
                //Release resources held by TripleDes Encryptor                
                //return the Clear decrypted TEXT
                return UTF8Encoding.UTF8.GetString(resultArray);

    but how I decrypt it in Java, I tried to use that code but I got error message:
    public String Decrypt(String signed_request)
    		String decryptedString = null;
    		    // Generate the secret key specs.
    		    byte[] key = "HK8N99LQ".getBytes();
    		    MessageDigest sha = MessageDigest.getInstance("MD5");
    		    key = sha.digest(key);	   	    
    		    key = Arrays.copyOf(key, 16); // use only first 128 bit
    		    SecretKeySpec secretKeySpec = new SecretKeySpec(key, "AES");
    		    // Instantiate the cipher
    		    Cipher cipher = Cipher.getInstance("AES/ECB/PKCS5PADDING");
    		    cipher.init(Cipher.DECRYPT_MODE, secretKeySpec);
    		    byte[] original = cipher.doFinal(signed_request.getBytes());
    		    decryptedString = new String(original);
    		catch(Exception e)
    			String message = e.getMessage();
            return decryptedString;

    Error Message:
    Input length must be multiple of 16 when decrypting with padded cipher.
