Nicholas Boucher and Ross Anderson, Cambridge University researchers, have discovered a new class of vulnerabilities that can be used by malicious actors to integrate visually deceptive malware directly into the source code of applications.

The technique, called “Trojan Source,” is a way to inject malware that is virtually invisible to human reviewers. To achieve this, a hacker would need to exploit certain subtleties in text encoding standards like Unicode to exploit target systems.

How to Create Easy Secure Passwords
