Okay, so I've opened it up in a text/hex editor and I see more than 2 null bytes.....

I can visually see where it is, but jesus i have no clue how to get it out. do i crop it down to make it easier to see in a text editor or something?

I'd strongly suggest using something else than notepad or wordpad - something like a real hex editor, or just robust like (g)vim. The general idea of using notepad makes a bit of sense, since you dont want any formatting to happen - but you should really only use it for small text-files. Files that aren't normally opened by 'user-friendly' programs from Windows, shouldn't be opened by them - they will never give you the tools and flexibility of programs that are made for the kind of work. So, for example, google 'free hex editor', or in linux just install hexedit or something similar.

I mainly just wanted to say I'm stuck with all of you though \o/ got a plaintext but it won't work. Glad to be a part of the hurd!

it took me about 10 seconds to understand the tip and find the bytes, but now im stuck with some sort of an encrypted data and i have absolutely no idea what to do with it.

Finding the area isn't that difficult but once you do, take a good look at what you've found and something should come to mind.

After reading the thread,I know dat wat I thought at first about how 2 encode d mission was wrong. I tried inverting the image. But if u do dat, u see a message coming up.

Having solved this, I know where the message is and how to extract it. However I don't understand whatever message you might be seeing. How did you invert the image, and how did you 'see' a message--and what is that message?

This was a very interesting challenge... Took me few hours to complete it...

Here's some help:

- think about "2 null bytes" and find the important section of the picture
- Keep in mind that password looks like this: *******
- think BINARY!
- You should notice one thing is missing
- now think logicaly, where could the missing thing be?
- try out few combinations
- You should end up with the password made out of alphabet letters and numbers

Hope that helps ;)

Depends on the stego. You're probably better off with a Hex editor here, but others might require an image editor instead.
