AntiSteg Publisher's description
AntiSteg cleans images and AVI files of potentially harmful content.
AntiSteg is a command line tool for cleaning images and AVI files of potentially harmful steganographical content. Many popular image formats (especially those used on the Web) are handled by the tool. Archive support has been added. Steganography is a means by which information is hidden inside of images (often via high-encryption algorithms), making them completely invisible to all standard image viewers. Stegged images can carry extremely harmful payloads, which include, but are not limited to: Child pornography/Snuff movies Viruses, Trojans, Spyware, Spamware, and other Malware Sensitive personal/corporate Data AntiSteg does not attempt to extract the actual hidden data, but simply antistegs the content, making it impossible to be retrieved at a later point in time. This approach allows it to quickly clean a computer, even if 100,000s of images are stored on it. Dozens of AVI files can also be cleaned. In contrast, trying to desteg just one image which uses a high encryption encoding (256 bit or higher), and a properly selected password is computationally nearly infeasible. Trying the same just one AVI file is not even worth considering! Since the amount of images stored on the Web approaches staggering numbers (anywhere from 100s of billions to trillions), the possibility to successfully store and trade/sell child pornography, snuff movies,, distribute viruses, or exchange sensitive information is very high. Even worse, anybody who operates a web site (personal or corporate) that contains images, may unwittingly be helping pedophiles, black-hat hackers, or data spies in their operations. Of course, the same holds true for any e-mail attachment, or MMS being sent! Currently available antivirus, antispyware, and antimalware tools do NOT address this problem! Companies that allow image specific searches - like Google - do NOTHING to prevent stegged images from being spread via their services!
