Herewith some explanation on how you could have looked at the challenge ;IF YOU ARE STILL WORKING ON THIS AND DONT WANT THE SOLUTIONS, STOP READING
This challenge was all about looking at the file structure.
At the first glance, it appears to be a normal zip archive with a protected file.
But the file seems corrupted and the password protected file is not able to be extracted.
Having a look at the file in Kali with 'unzip' ;
So you need to look closely at the hex of the file.
A great resource for checking valid file headers and trailers is Gary Kessler's website on same ; http://www.garykessler.net/library/file_sigs.html
(just hit F3 and search for the file extension you want info on, in this case 'zip')
So you can see that a normal zip file has a header of '50 4B 03 04'
Having a look at the hex of dixie.zip ;
Hmm.. hang on.. header here is '50 4B 2E 2E', that dont look right..
Edit the hex to show the correct zip header and save;
Now when opening the zip file and trying to open the protected file, you will be prompted for a password,
trying the password as provided in the txt file (dixie) an image file will be extracted of the good 'ol original

So all in all, the challenges I have posted so far have been showing how you ;
> Check files for superfluous information
> Encoding / Decoding of files and text
> The importance of checking headers and trailers
With the above and previous walkthroughs, Image Challenge #6 should be a piece of cake for ya'all and no explanation should need to be given.
