    Embeded Image viruses / Trojans

    hi AO's !!!

    Well, i had this nagging curiosity of knowing that are there any known Image Viruses/ Trojans that can be embeded into .bmp, .jpg or .gif files ???

    I feel this viruses/ Trojans if in existence will be really hard to detect and more over they will be so deceptive in nature. Imagine a virus embeded in porn picture !! If downloaded can cause a havoc with the computers.

    Note : I used porn example only because that will be the really tempting picture to most of the people.

    Waiting for replies.
    Thanks in Adv.

    This is the second topic on this in a month...search a little before you post.

    To answer the question Yes/No, yes you can embed a virus into a image, no it doesn’t work unless the system was already exploited by a Trojan that changed how images are read. So if you can get a Trojan past the victims antivirus, you can make them susceptible to image viri...but why bother if you already know they have wake/no virus protection.
