An Image can Hack Your Computer

Yes, you heard it right! A normal looking image can hack your computer.

An image can be used by a hacker to embed a malicious code in it. When a user opens the image, it will infect the computer by malware without the knowledge of the user.

What potential harm it can do to you: 

  • data loss
  • revelation of username and password
  • credit card data
  • virus or malware infection
  • corruption of important files
  • corrupt your operating system

How to protect your computer from infection?

  • Do not open any images received from an unknown source
  • Do not click on any links or images received in an email from unknown source
  • Always keep your Windows operating system and Browsers up-to-date
  • Use a good anti-virus and internet security software
  • Do not download images from unknown or not so popular websites.

So next time think twice before opening an image from an unknown source.
