17 has nothing to do with 16. These are two different missions.

Let's see if I can word this without giving too much away.

After some conversion I've landed at a password protected archive. It's only 148b and contains a valid header. Since things have fallen into place so conveniently thus far (as to render an actual archive), I feel like I'm on the right track but have been guessing passwords for an hour now and thought I should ask if this was intended behavior or if it's a result of faulty conversion.

If the protection is intentional should I attempt to brute-force the password or is there some hint that I'm missing. The only clue toward finding a password I see, is the time displayed in the original image and so far my efforts pursuing this have been futile.

Any advice will be appreciated.

The protection is intentional and does not require brute-force.

bruteforcing isn't a good way to finish it... you will end up with a very-very simple password after you bruteforce it in 8 days :D

Need a hint on Stego 17...

Post by aliendude530 on Mon Mar 16, 2009 3:16 pm
([msg=20063]see Need a hint on Stego 17...[/msg])

Ok, I've been trying this one for a while and I discovered a few things about the image:
* 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?
