If you have gone to popular web sites lately and are NOT behind a Firewall your computer is most likely infected!  YES!   Thanks to a new exploit kit discovered by security researchers from an AntiVirus provider ESET have discovered an exploit kit STEGANO, hiding malicious code in pixles of banner advertisements.  These banner advertisements are in a constant rotation on many popular web sites.  So, again....  If your not behind a Firewall you are most likely infected.  In this particular malvertising campaign, operators hide malicious code inside transparent PNG image's Alpha Channel, which defines the transparency of each pixel, by altering the transparency value of several pixels.
