A Twitter message is spreading like wildfire that Operation Tyler is finally completed. The project also known as Project mayhem 2012 or PM2012 is out of Bata testing and ready for for the world. A little while ago The highly anticipated and
heavly prompted "Tyler" platform was scheduled for release on December 5th, 2012, but the project was not fully ready for release, thus the developers decided to postpone the release.
The tweet message read. "#TYLER is finally operational. Let the mayhem begin #pm2012 LEAK IT ALL"
But STOP, before going leak happy remember to Remove the META data also known as Exif data from all files.
Currently there is no easy to strip meta data aka Exif data from files in large quantities easily on cross platform using an Automation process.
Obviously if someone wants to create such a program that can automatically strip meta data from files in large batches that would be great. But for now it is strongly advised to not upload data unless you feel its clean from all meta information.
Examining video file metadata
Digital forensics examiners are very aware of the benefits of identifying metadata in files from word processing documents to image files. The metadata in image files, referred to as Exif (Exchangeable image file format), has been a source of information in forensic examinations for some time. Many files, including video files, have metadata.
If metadata is important in other investigations, can video metadata be a similar potential treasure trove?
When entering the Tyler site in order to access the downloads feature you must sign in to the site. This is very easy. You don't need any real identifying information only an email which can easily be generated, a secure password, and your Anonymous name. any name will do fine.
Keep up the good work guys and remember "Government hates competition." Links are provided below explaining meta data and how to find Tyler.
Links that will help people understand META data aka Exif data.
