Twitter Memes

Twitter MemesResearchers have discovered a malware that is being distributed by hackers, which receives instructions from… memes.
That’s right, this form of malware that targets Windows systems can “capture local screenshots, enumerating applications on the system, checking for vulnerabilities in them, capturing clipboard content, and sending files back to the attacker.” It also can receive instructions from Twitter memes. This type of communication is known as stenography and hypothetically could be used to instruct many people at once with memes, while surpassing most detection systems.

So, stay frosty this holiday while perusing the interwebs for memes! Make sure all your systems are up to date and your credentials aren’t compromised… better to enjoy this season!
