This morning's news brought this story:
Where they warn that subtitles in videos played on computers could be used to deliver ransomware.
Yes we all know about steganography - hiding messages in jpegs and mp3s, and I don't doubt that a message could be hidden in video. But it seems a stretch to say that subtitles could somehow activate themselves and take over a computer.
So my question is simple: Does anyone here actually know of any cases where this has happened?
