Hackers could evade most existing antivirus protection by hiding malicious
code within ordinary text, according to security researchers.

One of the most common ways of hijacking other people’s computers is to use
"code-injection" attacks, in which malicious computer code is delivered to and
then run on victims’ machines. Current security measures work on the assumption
that the code used has a different structure to plain text such as English
prose.

Now a team of researchers has highlighted a potential future theatre in the
virus-security arms race by working out how to hide malware within
English-language sentences.
