This week I wanted to give you an additional layer to your security program. As mentioned in the video, this isn't designed to replace your file encryption practice, but to add on to it. I wanted to show you how you can hide files within other files. Specifically hide your files inside of an image.
Also, I wanted to show you how to do it without any third party programs. That's good because if someone is looking for your files on your computer and they see that you have a third party tool that hides files within jpegs, then all of your jpeg images will become suspect wouldn't they.
The commands mentioned in the video are:
copy /b image.jpg + archive.zip output.jpg
cat archive.zip >> output.jpg
Simple right? Now all you need to do to extract your secret files is an archive utility like 7zip or WinRAR. I prefer to use 7zip for the original archiving process as well because it give you some options as far as encrypting the contents and password protecting the archive as well.
So what do you think about this technique? Like it? Think it's pointless? Let us know what you think in the comments.
