    Looks very interesting. Steganography on hard disks can be very effective, especially if combined with encryption.

    @ lotuseclat79

    Thanks for posting :thumb:

    Covert channels :eek: I bet Joanna Rutkowska - http://theinvisiblethings.blogspot.com - will be interested this ;)

    Here's a surprise !

    Can't remember reading any stuff from techies in Pakistan before ! Just shows, interesting things can come from anywhere these days :)

    Havn't had chance to go through it all yet, but i have noticed this.

    FAT32 ! So i could do it on mine :D And i expect it could be done on USB drives too. I wonder if it could be adapted to non FAT32 ?

    Anyway, very clever :D and should give the men in black a hard time :D

    Hi CloneRanger,

    Maybe the Pakistanis are here or around the world in other universites teaching or getting their PhDs and then doing post-doc work in reseach labs, eh?
