ColdFusion 8 Decrypt error with CFMX_COMPAT algorithm hotfix

I was trying with encryption and decryption in ColdFusion for a demo iPhone app using SOAP. Well, the problem was with the ColdFusion end. I tried with default (CFMX_COMPAT) algorithm. I was getting an error "The input and output encodings are not same" while decrypting. After trying to fix this for some time, I googled and found that it was the problem with ColdFusion 8 (bug ID : 75676) and need to apply the hotfix (Cumulative Hot Fix 3 for ColdFusion 8.0.1). I applied it to the server and the error was resolved.

Hot fix can be obtained from here. Cumulative Hot Fix 3 for ColdFusion 8.0.1
