Backbone Security developed StegAlyzerAS to detect steganography on a system. It operates by looking for both known stego artefacts and programme files associated with over 650 different steganography toolsets. The NIST database of hash sets also includes steganography hash sets.
Hiding harmful code in an image or audio file is only half of the battle for hackers. To run such code, they'll need a malicious or malfunctioning programme on the target's machine. That is why criminals employ steganography to deliver malicious software into hacked systems.
One of the most prevalent approaches for steganography is to embed a text file into an image file. While there are many diverse purposes for steganography, including embedding sensitive information into file formats, embedding a text file into an image file is one of the most common.
Steganography's goal is to conceal and deceive. It is a type of covert communication in which messages are hidden using any media. It isn't cryptography because it doesn't encrypt data or require the usage of a key. Instead, it's a type of data concealment that can be done in a variety of ways.
