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


  • $\begingroup$ It seems there is another imgur link hidden in blue color. But, I am not able to read it in its written form. $\endgroup$ – Techidiot Mar 2 '17 at 7:37
  • $\begingroup$ 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.... $\endgroup$ – pie314271 Mar 2 '17 at 7:52
  • $\begingroup$ 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. $\endgroup$ – stack reader Mar 2 '17 at 8:36

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


Second message leads to:

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

Third message:

use ASCII OCT table

4th step:


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…

  • $\begingroup$ How did you find the pastebin link? :-/ $\endgroup$ – Techidiot Mar 2 '17 at 10:00
  • $\begingroup$ look at colors at 1st line… got it? :) $\endgroup$ – Jan Ivan Mar 2 '17 at 10:03
  • $\begingroup$ @JanIvan Could you outline (*cough*) the method of getting from 4 to 5? I hope OP provides us a path around the permissions issue. $\endgroup$ – Rubio Mar 2 '17 at 10:24
  • $\begingroup$ 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 $\endgroup$ – Jan Ivan Mar 2 '17 at 10:28

    $\begingroup$ I think the second one might be a Pastebin link, not an Imgur link. $\endgroup$ – F1Krazy Mar 2 '17 at 9:16
