Weird and wild cutting edge Security Threats
Your GPU A future malware target
Back in March, a group of developers created a malware proof of concept called JellyFish that demonstrated how malware could potentially run on a PC s graphics processor.
While JellyFish was but an example to show to the security world how such an attack might work, malware like it could prove especially potent, because it can be readily adapted to attack machines running WIndows, Linux, or OS X.
GPU hosted malware would also be more difficult for antivirus software to detect, though a recent report from McAfee indicates that security software may may be able to detect it after all. Here s hoping.
