checking files for hiden scripts

Post by ckonn » Thu Jan 11, 2018 8:13 am

hello,
many people surfing internet downloading different image, audio and video files.

how could a linux-user check if a separate image, audio or video file contains some kind of embedded code or some kind of malicious script implemented by some steganographic method?

thanks in advans
