stegbrute is a steganography brute-force tool written in Rust using also threads to achieve a faster execution


Stegbrute cannot run without steghide!, to install steghide run :

apt-get install -y steghide

if you are not in a debian distribution you can download it from steghide website


stegbrute can be installed in different ways:


throught cargo (Rust package manager)

if you don't have cargo you can install it either from apt or by downloading Rust lang

cargo install stegbrute

this will work for every platform

Debian distributions

if you have ubuntu/kali or other debian distributions you can install the .deb file you find on the releases section, then unpack the file and run it

wget https://github.com/R4yGM/stegbrute/releases/download/0.1.0/stegbrute_0.1.0_amd64.deb &&
dpkg --install stegbrute_0.1.0_amd64.deb


if you don't have docker installed you can follow their guide

first you have to pull the docker image (only 4.93 MB) from the docker registry, you can see it here, if you don't want to pull the image you can also clone the repository and then build the image from the Dockerfile

docker pull r4yan/stegbrute:latest

you can also decide to pull different images by replacing 'latest' with a stegbrute version, ex.

docker pull r4yan/stegbrute:0.1.0

if you don't want to pull the image you can download/copy stegbrute Dockerfile that can be found here and then build the image from the Dockerfile

then if you want to launch the container you have to first create a volume to share your files to the container

docker volume create --name stegbrute_data

then move or copy the files you want to use for stegbrute inside the volume folder wich usually is here /var/lib/docker/volumes/stegbrute_data/_data by just doing

cp wordlist.txt /var/lib/docker/volumes/stegbrute_data/_data && cp file.jpg /var/lib/docker/volumes/stegbrute_data/_data

and now run stegbrute

docker run -v stegbrute_data:/stegbrute_data -it --rm --name stegbrute r4yan/stegbrute:latest <options>

replace the <options> with the options/arguments you want to give to stegbrute, once you did everything you don't have to pull/build the image again only if there are new updates or features

Always save your results inside the volume and not in the container because then the results will be deleted! you can save them by adding this option -x /$VOLUME_NAME/results.txt or --extract-file /$VOLUME_NAME/results.txt

if you added this and did everything correctly at the end of every attack you'd find the results inside the folder /var/lib/docker/volumes/stegbrute_data/_data

this will work for every platform
