Admittedly, this one is fairly easy... I hope it isn't too bad. Whether it is bad or not is up to you.

  • $\begingroup$ You're right. But is there a way to find it? Hint: It's not pure white so it can be differentiated. If only you could change the white background.... $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Wow this is creepy, I can see the hidden text directly on the image from the post. Depending on what angle I move my head. $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 2, 2017 at 8:36

Partial: First "hidden" message in first picture leads to:


https://i.sstatic.net/9l3XT.png

Second message leads to:

not c4M5fvz5, but look at colors in first sentence. That makes f5zMv54c.

Third message:

use ASCII OCT table
document/d/1xW6YdNa31SoeGpUSWfz4jdpxYAJrs3v77XhwAzlzsQk

4th step:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1xW6YdNa31SoeGpUSWfz4jdpxYAJrs3v77XhwAzlzsQk/edit

5th step:

Message is hidden in "not so empty" rows. something like http://gdforum.freeforums.net/thread/40679/subject + message: It’s somewhere there… ;)
but "You do not have permission to access this thread."
So thread exists, but no idea how to get there…

  • $\begingroup$ @JanIvan Could you outline (*cough*) the method of getting from 4 to 5? I hope OP provides us a path around the permissions issue. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I can open docs, can't open 5th one. 4th one is stego. But i use "reverse colors" addon, so i read white text on black window. Or maybe try ctrl+A $\endgroup$

Partial answer:

The first image,

when equalized: enter image description here

reveals the link for the second image:

enter image description here

However,

http://imgur.com/c4M5fvz5 and http://imgur.com/c4M5fv25 don't lead anywhere

    $\begingroup$ I think the second one might be a Pastebin link, not an Imgur link. $\endgroup$
