How I Solved quiztime(APR-15) OSINT challenge
The challenge is to find the following details by using the images provided
- 1️⃣ Name the band & song 🎸
- 2️⃣ Find the locations Shown here 📍
- 3️⃣Give the timestamp from the clip for each ⏱
1). How did I found the band name and the song? 🔎
First, I paid my attention to the first image, I opened the image in a new tab and ran a reverse “Yandex” image search using “Search by image” chrome extension. I found a similar image result quickly. Yandex gave me the Band name along with Wikipedia link to the Band page.
So the Band name is “Dead south” and the song name is “In Hell, I’ll Be in Good Company”
That’s it I found the Band name and The song.
2). How I got the Timestamps ⏱
The next challenge is to provide the time stamps for each clip. So I navigated to the youtube and searched for the song. then I opened each image side by side with the video and match each image with the time frames of the video.
I got the timestamps also.
3). How did I found the location 🗺
This is the Hardest Part of the challenge, I inspected the first image for hints, so I gather some pieces of information from it.
on the right side, I saw a mobile number from a poster and left side I was able to see a tower, a Sign that indicates letter p in green background, street name, and banners.
first, I did a reverse phone number lookup by using the mobile number that got from the poster. I used thatsthem.com to find the details of the mobile number.
I was able to get a company name from the mobile number. I found a Town called “Oakville”. So I did a google search about “Oakville”
it gave me this result
“Oakville” is Town of Canada, and this band is also a Canadian band, That confirms this Shot in Canada.
Then I searched Google for the Green banner, I used “municipal parking” as my keyword. I got a result named “Green P Carpark”. The banner also Green and the result I got “Green P Carpark”.
So next I searched for Banner called “Jerk Spot” with the street name got from the road sign “Baldwin Street”. So I got this result
Hmm, I got the Jerk Spot’s Location. and I was able to see the Green P car park is also located near the Jerk Spot. interesting….😊
I inspected the location and put a dropped pin in the Steet View.
yeah. I got the location.
I got the exact location. But I wanted to check for more banners to confirm. In the first image, there is a tower and a Banner named “Tp”. So I went further down the road. and Got this Result
The Tower and the Banner named “TP”.😍
So, I confirmed the exact location 🗺
- Third image
I was able to see “Free parking” sticker and the Shop number “418”
so I searched for the number “418” shop, in the same area. I got this result
a Shop with the green sticker “Free Parking”
Done Got the location 🗺
- Second image — Inside a Record store
I searched for the Director of the video, Finally, I found this Facebook post
with this comment
Again I searched google for the Record store Location with the name
searched in google map again
Got the Location 😊
