    Announcing the release of Anti-Steganography
    (AntiSteg v1.20) by Security Online Services: AntiSteg 1.20: Anti-Steganography

    *** Now with Archive support.
    v1.20 Replaces v1.10 ***

    Security Online Services

    Provides free software to improve your online and offline
    computer experience.

    AntiSteg is a command line tool for cleaning images
    and widely used AVI files of potentially harmful
    steganographical content.

    The newest added feature, encompasses antistegging images
    and AVI files packed inside of archives (Support for
    several popluar archive formats is included).

    Many popular image formats (several dozens, and
    especially those used and distributed on the Web) are
    handled by the tool.

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

    - Child pornography/Snuff movies
    - 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.
    To attempt the same on an AVI movie is not even worth

    AntiSteg has been tested on hundreds of thousands of
    images and successfully applied to antisteg pictures
    created by dozens of freely available steganographical
    image and AVI tools. Some of these tools have been widely
    spread via commercial CD/DVD distributions. These
    distributions in turn, have been put forth by several
    well known Computer Magazines which have a worldwide
    audience. Put simply, steganographical tools - to hide
    images and complete movies - are widely spread and come
    in many different flavours.

    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 (snuff movies), 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

    Firewalls provide no security with respect to asynchronous, bi-
    directional steganographical communication via 2 web sites (spy site
    and infected site) and simple web monitoring software augmented with
    steganographical support for modifying images (hosted on spy site).
    Neither heuristic, nor behavior-based antivirus and antispyware
    applications will detect anything unusal since all software operations
    are identical to those performed by 1000s of image editing, image
    viewing, and web site monitoring sofware currently in circulation.

    AntiSteg is the ONLY available and WORKING tool that
    effectively deals with this problem. And best of all,
    it's FREE!

    Special requirements: None.
