Greek words «hide» and «write»

The term steganography comes from the Greek words «hide» and «write» and literally means hiding information in unclassified data. When it comes to cybersecurity, steganography refers to the process of embedding malicious code in seemingly harmless files.Hackers can embed malware in almost any type of file you want to imagine, including images and videos. In doing so, they are not only more likely to fool the victim, but also better able to evade any security products that may be installed on the computer.
