When Steganography Stops Being Cool

The art and science of concealing data inside other data is what we know as steganography. People have used it for a long time to keep adversaries from looking at their secret information. While attackers have been using steganography for centuries and for different purposes, in this talk we focus on malware authors and how they hide configuration data and second-stage malicious code in places we are not necessarily looking at. This includes not only the traditional images but they also abuse network protocols and other communication channels. By reviewing current techniques in use, we try to predict how the future looks like. We, and the security industry as a whole, need improved and better solutions to detect malicious steganography uses and to finally overcome the ever-increasing number of cybercriminals jumping on the “stego-bandwagon”.
