How to hide exe (or any file) in jpg/mp3

This post is for all those who want to hide their secret files, or for all hackers out there who wanna hide some Trojans like key-loggers or any other executable in a jpg/bmp/mp3 file.

There are many ways to do this, but the simplest I found is using a freeware tool by NeoByte Solutions. All you have to do is just install this software in your pc. Follow the instructions on screen, select the jpg file in which you want to hide exe (or any file), select the exe and press next…..and Voila….you’re done.

The resultant jpg will look exactly same as before and can be viewed in any image viewer. All you can see is the increase in the file size of jpg. So the smaller the size to be hidden, the better the prospects of remaining it unidentified.

The same software can be used to decrypt the encrypted image and fetch the hidden files out of it.

This technique, also termed as Steganography, works on the concept of hiding files in white spaces in image.

The only drawback of this technique is that the exe remains unusable till its hidden. If you wanna know how to execute exe’s in background while viewing the jpg’s, a case is to infect the victim’s computer by hiding trojans inside images, then wait for my next post :)… Keep checking for further updates.

Feel free to ask any query.  Suggestions are most welcome.

    Another alternative to join a exe with a mp3, is with a hexadecimal editor, your put the exe before the MZ, and for execute run the command: cmd.exe /c File.mp3.

    My problem is find a method why execute the mp3 and the executable with single double click.

    I would greatly appreciate your help.

    P.D.: I Sorry for my bad english.
