THS - IMAGE CHALLENGE 1
« on: September 13, 2012, 09:54:45 PM »
So people like challenges, and it keeps things interesting. Winning comes with bragging rights and maybe some kind of prizes. Not all will come with prizes. It just depends on what we have to give out. Anyhow...here is the first challenge. Pay close attention.

There are two photographs that I have uploaded. The two links are:

https://docs.google.com/open?id=0BxsQRXrdBOxhMkd1MkZkYVpkdUE

https://docs.google.com/open?id=0BxsQRXrdBOxhMk9FSHplT3NUYk0

You will need to download these files. One of them is a .jpg and one of them is a .png. Other than the extensions, there is something that is very different about each picture. They both are pictures of the same thing, yet they are different. Find the difference and good luck. I will post more challenges soon.

If you guys think you know, feel free to post or email me. I will say who is correct as soon as the correct answer is given.

Looked at it for 15 minutes and the only thing I could find is different is the shading on the .jpg file is slightly darker in some areas than the .png file.

Bugger you R4V3n... you got me intrigued...


So when the final indications come out, please make sure to finalise the post or else I would expect
a mass reduction in THS activity owing to frustration assisted mental breakdowns...

I have checked the usual Exif / Stegdetect and the like, but not entirely sure what I am supposed to \
be looking for, next time give a hint ;)

Which has made me think, there must be a tool to analyze files on what the content is and what
else 'could' be present.. but I dont know or use such a tool..

I am thinking of a new tool to check file content an verify a number of possibilities based
on existing tools.. but first I want to know what the difference was in the files dammit....

Quit da t0rtur3 !   ;)

Take all the advice you like and then tell everyone to **** off and do your own thing -- Gitsnik
