    Announcing the release of Anti-Steganography (AntiSteg v1.00):

    antisteg100.zip AntiSteg 1.00: Anti-Steganography

    AntiSteg is a command line tool for cleaning images of potentially
    harmful
    steganographical content. Many popular image formats (especially those
    used
    on the Web) are handled by the tool.

    Steganography is a means by which information is hidden inside of
    images
    (often via high-encryption algorithms), making them completely
    invisible to
    all standard image viewers. Stegged images can carry extremely harmful
    payloads,
    which include, but are not limited to:

    Child pornography
    Viruses, Trojans, Spyware, Spamware, and other Malware
    Sensitive personal/corporate Data

    AntiSteg does not attempt to extract the actual hidden data, but
    simply antistegs
    the content, making it impossible to be retrieved at a later point in
    time.
    This approach allows it to quickly clean a computer, even if 100,000s
    of images
    are stored on it. In contrast, trying to desteg just one image which
    uses a high
    encryption encoding (256 bit or higher), and a properly selected
    password is
    computationally nearly infeasible.

    Since the amount of images stored on the Web approaches staggering
    numbers
    (anywhere from 100s of billions to trillions), the possibility to
    successfully
    store and trade/sell child pornography, distribute viruses, or
    exchange sensitive
    information is very high. Even worse, anybody who operates a web site
    (personal
    or corporate) that contains images, may unwittingly be helping
    pedophiles,
    black-hat hackers, or data spies in their operations. Of course, the
    same holds
    true for any e-mail attachment, or MMS being sent!

    Currently available antivirus, antispyware, and antimalware tools do
    NOT address
    this problem!
    Companies that allow image specific searches - like Google - do
    NOTHING to prevent
    stegged images from being spread via their services!

    Special requirements: None.
