There are three images that can be found by editing the page. Comparing the differences of the first two images of static showed the Hex code 0C 7D C7 C3 D9 56 1B AB E6. The third image was the corrupted image. I opened this one in a hex editor and found the characters CORRUPTED at location B8 through C0. I replaced all of the hex in that area with the hex from the first two images. After reopening the image I was greeted with the text "you win"


The hidden message is

you win

Strangely, I could only detect it by downloading and viewing it in another image viewer.
