Retro - Stegno

Greetings, I have been stuck since 2 days on Retro challenge from steg..
I have extracted the audio file from the image.
I have tried steghide, foremost, xxd, and hexdump on the audio file and got nothing...
I also tried online spectrum analyzer and nothing...

Please show me the right path =)

  • Hi, I am working on Retro too. I opened the audio file with Audacity. After the two tones there is something strange, worth looking deeper. I am stuck there.

  • Same here with the audio. I have a feeling I'm down the rabbit hole

  • The text file is confusing me. What did y'all make of it?

  • BUMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Think about data storage in the 80s...

  • I'm too... Got the files but I have no idea how to continue wie the audio file. I'm too young for this challenge... :anguished:

  • Hi, I'm stuck too apart from seeing a Manchester coding ! do we need a specific tool (other than audacity)?

  • Can anyone please help after extracting both the files for this challenge?

  • tried the storage devices for steghide in the audio. Still no clue. Any hint ?

  • Same here, I have the audio and text file, but I'm not sure what the next step is re: the audio. And I'm not sure how the .txt fits in.

  • Easy solved :cold_sweat:

    Currently, I'm aware of two ways to solve this:

    1. Follow the thematic clues. This is the most rewarding and (I imagine) the intended way to solve this problem since you'll learn a few things.
    2. Analyze the basic data you normally collect when working on a steganography problem. Look for patterns or abnormalities. Trust your instincts and you'll find the flag.

    Don't bother looking for a clue better than this one

  • Hi !, i have the mp3 and the txt , i use sonic -vizualizer but nothing appears .I have some clues but maybe spoilers so if someone can PM me . Thanks

  • Any hints? I have the audio and text file. The audio seems like manchester coding but I have no idea what I should do. Any hints? Feel free to PM me.

  • Done! Oh man, does that take me back a few years. That was a really nice trip down memory lane.
    Many is the time I spent sitting waiting for the damn thing to load only for it to barf at the last second. And then again there is the old "spinning on a pencil" just to get back to the start. Yes, definitely trip into my early teens.

  • I got it after a while! PM for hints if needed

  • Can anyone help me out on this? I have what seems like the final file, but I cant seem to get any data out of it besides the & symbol. i'm so close I can taste ittttttt

  • I know very well what's that sound. But have no clue how to use it without that specific 80's beautiful piece of hardware. My old one is gone :)

  • I know what the sound is, but no idea how to use it to get something meaningful

  • Search, search about 80´s data and search more about actual software to translate...

    Thanks!

  • My advice is : listen to the audio file. Try to find something similar on youtube. Use the clue given.

  • Really stuck on this challenge. Have very faint knowing about data storage in 80s. Would be very thankful for a hint

    I'm stuck on this challenge too! I think we need a tool to convert .wav files into text or smt!
