Check Point is an IT security company that provides protection for companies looking to keep bad guys and bad stuff out of their networks.
The company recently discovered a new attack they are calling ImageGate. This sneaky little attack embeds malware in image and graphics files.

Frequently it is Ransomware that is being installed.
