Result & Solution of Image Cracking Challenge

There was a challenge has been
published on the blog to find the secret message(s) hidden on the
images, the challenge contain the brief information of the background
story and the requirements it was a small practice so that everyone
can evaluate their knowledge and skills. So in this article I will
show you the technique to find the hidden message and I will announce
the name of the people who has successfully found the messages.

There might be several ways to find
the hidden message but the concept is very general which is
steganography (an art of hidden communication). There are so many
online tools are available that can help you to find the secret
message from an image and there are so many tools for desktop usage
are also available and I will discuss the tool called “stepic
which is available on backtrack 5 r1 and r2.

So the answer of the challenge is:

Two images contain the hidden
message, the image number 1 and the image number 2 respectively.”

# stepic -d -i image1.png
this is not enough you need to find
# stepic -d -i image2.png
so you did it, two images has the
secret message
# stepic -d -i image3.png

Below are the names of the people
who has solved the challenge, I don’t know whatever technique they
have used but they have found the secret messages.

  • bgood
  • R!pster
  • Ceasertheape
  • Rusyidi Rosli
  • papyHerman
  • timos petropoulos
  • Jmt

If something wrong with the result,
