* It is encoded in a special way to allow a file to be stored in it while the original image still looks the same
* The name of the original file was stego17, but the file doesn't seem to be directly written into the image, it seems to be encrypted.
[Edited by: Defience]
* There does not seem to be anything in the file...
* The technique used seems similar to something programs like Hide in Picturewould use, but I don't know the password.
Am I supposed to bruteforce the password using Hide in Picture or something?

Appearances can be deceiving. No bruteforcing necessary.

I think there are only 2 ways to extract the .rar:
1. bruteforce (as you said its not necessary)
2. try to find the right pass ...
Helixx: [...]have been guessing passwords for an hour now[...]

erm ... I am trying the same without any success so it cannot be the right way, especially because I looked for any hint in every intermediate step of conversion.

Would be nice to know if there is another way.

thx

Maybe I can give you a hand here.....there is no reason to make blind guesses. Everything is connected somehow.

If you're where I think you are on this one, pay attention to the way you format your attempts.
