Start Digging

Challenge:

There's a secret buried here, but we need help finding it. Supposedly, there's a flag hidden deep within this image. But how far down do we need to dig?

Solution:

$ binwalk --dd='.*' steg06.jpg

DECIMAL       HEXADECIMAL     DESCRIPTION
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
0             0x0             JPEG image data, EXIF standard
12            0xC             TIFF image data, little-endian offset of first image directory: 8
117819        0x1CC3B         JPEG image data, EXIF standard
117831        0x1CC47         TIFF image data, big-endian, offset of first image directory: 8
118003        0x1CCF3         JPEG image data, EXIF standard
118015        0x1CCFF         TIFF image data, big-endian, offset of first image directory: 8

Binwalk was able to extract six files, 3 JPEG’s and 3 TIFF’s. I manually viewed each image and found the flag in file 1CCF3.
