Challenge: Cool Image 2 (for 105 points, dynamic) [Forensics]
Written by: cppio My friend sent me this image, but I can't open it. Can you help me open the image? File: cool.png Free Hint: Try looking at the raw contents of the file.
Let’s capture tis fl4g:
We have a
cool.png file, on opening it, we get,
Let’s see the
hexdump of this file with the command,
$ hexdump -C cool.png
As we can see here, there’s some string in the header i.e. extra bytes that is messing up our
cool.png file that’s why we are not able to open it in image viewer,
We can simply use
foremost to extract the image from the messed up file we have.
$ foremost cool.png $ eog output/png/*.png
We have the Flag!
