I came across a post on fitting large amounts of data within a image using the ICC_Profile of the image. You can read about it here: How to fit all of Shakespeare in one tweet (and why not to do it!)

I find it interesting it's a #notabug according to Twitter. Though, it's going to be a new to hide information on Twitter. I realize it's not encrypted (but who says it cannot be encrypted before putting in the image).

That is interesting! I had forgotten about steganography. After reading that article, I came across a zdnet article published a fews days ago about Malvertising incidents utilizing steganography. Sadly the article is pretty low on actual details. It makes a claim that "Malicious code hidden in advert images cost ad networks $1.13bn this year". However, looking at their source for that stat, I think it was claiming that "auto-redirect malvertising" in general is generating those losses. (Also how do they come up with these figures?).

Still, very interesting area to explore further. Thanks for sharing.

@Fast & Furious : TBH, how do they come up with most numbers for Cyber Security? It seems too much of whatever data they used is locked away and cannot be verified by normal people due to laws and restrictions (including pay walls). Very frustrating.
