Steganography- Hiding Information Inside of Information
Wayne Porter
Steganography is the art and science of writing hidden messages in such a way that no one apart from the intended recipient knows of the existence of the message; this is in contrast to cryptography, where the existence of the message itself is not disguised, but the content is obscured. The word "Steganography" is of Greek origin and means "covered, or hidden writing". Its ancient origins can be traced back to 440 BC. Learn more about this cryptic art from SpywareGuide.

FaceTime Security Labs
Research experts at FaceTime Security Labs identified and reported a new threat today affecting Yahoo! Messenger. A self-propagating worm, named yhoo32.explr, installs "Safety Browser" and hijacks the Internet Explorer homepage, leading users to a site that puts spyware on their PCs. Because Safety Browser uses the IE icon, users can easily mistake it for Internet Explorer. This is the first recorded incidence of malware installing its own web browser on a PC without the user's permission.
