If you are a windows pc user, then check this security threat update now.

Serious alert for windows pc users.

I am also a windows pc user and I always keeps myself updated with recently found threats online to keep myself safe.
But I thought I should share you this information to keep yourself safe from this online threat.
I am a regular internet user and I always download wallpapers for my computer and also for my collection.
But I recently found that there is a threat online which is being infected png image files and that makes attackers to install backdoors in your computer.
As this threat is undetectable by all antiviruses so its infecting lots of windows computers.
It works on a data hiding technique, attackers are using that technique to hide malicious scripts behind png image files.
Those malicious scripts can be used to install backdoors to a computer, not limited to this hackers can also use your computer to attack on other victims which usually known as Man in the middle attack.
I recently published an article on protection from man in the middle attack and protection from backdoors.
I also found a bug in Adobe flash player which is getting popular among hackers.
I will also recommend you to please update your adobe flash player now to protect yourself from online threats.

Always update your antivirus and try to disable flash plugin when not in use.
Recently we found many windows pc users got attacked using flash malwares on several webpages.
I hope I have helped you protecting your pc from online threats.
