Attack that allows for code execution via images

So you’re just minding your own business looking at memes online and oh what’s that? That’s right you’ve been infected with malware. This is possible thanks to a technique discovered by security researcher Saumil Shah from India, Dubbed “Stegosploit”.

Saumil Shah discussed his Steganography based attack in detail and went on to say:
“I don’t need to host a blog… I don’t need to host a website at all. I don’t even need to register a domain. I can take an image, upload it somewhere and if I just point you toward that image, and you load this image in a browser, it will detonate.”
