first off, for those of you complaining about the camera work... theres no camera involved. he uses a program called cam studio, its just a screen capture thing. and if you liked this one you should search jimmyrcom on youtube and watch some of his other videos. some of them are ridiculously over my head but interesting none the less

When i did it with winrar, i found a much easier way of viewing the files. simply right click on the `secret` image file and select `open with` then select winrar from the list and press ok, it will open a winrar window with all your files there. you can then extract them or open them or whatever you want to do.

there is however a problem with this system. if you hide too many files within one picture file, its size will go up far too much and you will end up with an image file that is about 10mb.

You could use this to make an image of a thumbnail gallery and then zip the gallery of images into the thumbnail.

Ok, for those winrar users out there. The way to decompress the files in the picture is a bit more complicated (and way too much of a hassle), but if you really want to know, I`ve figured it out. Anyway. Once you`ve complete the steps in the video, open winrar and browse to the new picture. Right-click the picture from inside winrar and select repair archive. Select the file type you put into the picture (.rar or .zip) and hit OK. A window will pop up saying "The archive header is corrupt. Mark the archive as solid?" It doesn`t matter what you hit. After that, finish the process and go back to the main winrar window. Right-click the new image and hit "Extract without confirmation". This will extract the hidden file into the folder where you have the rebuilt image. There you have it. A fairly-well detailed tutorial that explained just as much as the video, but without all the motion sickness. You`re welcome.

cool, so you just merge a jpg with a zip using Binary Copy. So putting a virus inside a jpg is that easy? That is super scary.

I`m sure there`s a program for windows to. So something sucks because you can do it through command prompt?

Why not use PROPER stenography?
This won`t pass a quick analysis.. I mean if you are really paranoid!

Password protected and encrypted. Try it!

Here`s two one for Windows and one for Linux

this video is proof that windows sucks... what a convoluted way to do something simple...

On the mac just open up the jpeg with the package editor and drag the files in...

yeh, you could use password protection...but then if the file is found by someone, they will know there is something to hide. this way it just seems like a boring picture file. no-one short of the cia or fbi will think to check every single picture file on your computer.

very cool, i shall have to give it a try.

"Lol just using the command line we can change a password without even knowing the original...I think my highschool`s PCs are in for something.."
my high school is smart enough not to allow kids to use the command prompt. or the "run" window for that matter

"GOD DAMN IT! People who knows this, do they seriously have to brief abaout it and tell everyone else about it?"
simmer down buddy! 1st of all, the people you`re trying to hide stuff from have to KNOW how to do it. second, they have to know which file. third, they have to use a compatible program to what you compressed it as.
and if you DO double layer it like that, they may be deterred by that.
unless you`re trying to hide the files from zero cool, you should be fine.

I`ve put it in the picture but I can`t get it out, it doesn`t have an option, and when I opened it with Winarchive it said there wasn`t anything in it.

Camera was a bit annoying and he didnt always speak clearly but it was a fantastic demonstration. That`s something useful to know, I just would like to have seen him actually open the word files and video file that he had "hidden" in the Jpg. Just to prove that your data doesnt get messed up by doing it and that it all works properly.

What if people hide malicious files in the picture, sent it around and somehow coded it to auto extract and execute the exe virus files when someone opens the picture to view? THAT is a really scary thought.

actually this was one of the methods the CIA was checking for in possible sleeper cells transferring files back in 2001.

Not a bad idea, just a little over explained

Great. Now I`m nervous that every single jpeg that I save to my computer has a secret document on it. I feel like the kid in Cloak and Dagger.

wow, camera work was annoying - could`ve done all that in 30 seconds - anyway, pretty neat hack. Rather than layering the compression in that way, just use password protected archives. At least double compressing though will probably defeat most pattern recognition software if your HDD is stolen/confiscated.

Of course now he`ll probably be arrested for distributing tools aiding in terrorism.

beternal~ no not really... tar is another type of file format used mostly in linux. and the hex editor is basically a tool that builds or takes apart the file.
