In this paper we present a steganalytic a ttack against mp3stego, a publicly available open-source steganographic tool which uses mp3 audio files as the stego m edium to embed hidden infor mation. We first identify through extensive statistical exper imentation which parameters of the m edium suffer a significant deviation from normality, then we construct a very efficient blind steganalytic algorithm based on their use. We finally present the results obtained with this steganaly tic approach over various sets of m p3 files, and an algorithm for the estimation of the amount of hidden data.
