I like how almost all solvers say that a hint is needed. -.-'

The main challenge in designing challenges is to make them interesting / challenging / maybe difficult without making them impossible. If you look at my forensics challenges I am trying to make a spectrum of challenges from easy to difficult... this challenge really is the result of what I learned on most of my previous jpeg / forensics challenges. https://ctflearn.com/challenge/by/kcbowhunter Some challenges that I created I thought would be difficult but ended up being easy... so I learned from that and created some challenges (like this one) that take a little more thought and examining the raw data in the jpeg as opposed to relying on tools to help find the solution.

I don't know the password to retrieve the hidden files.

You have to look for it in the jpeg

Pretty tricky this one, needed a hint but really well designed.

Thank you, yes I put a lot of thought into this one. And I benefited from what I learned creating earlier challenges, especially Pho and Tux which are much easier.

Quite hard, but ok
