These codes are already being used in specific programs some shady person online might tempt you to install, and there’s already a list of the known Trojan horses you should take a look at. If you care less about what’s already known and more about what we’re yet to uncover, there are ways of configuring your computer to get protected against all possible attacks. The actions required to perform are more complicated, though, so if you’re reading about this for the first time, chances are you should talk to an IT technician about it.
Let’s address the elephant in the room, shall we? Lapsus$ claim they have no connection to Russia or any other political group known for cyberattacks, and that seemingly spells less danger, but the codes are out there for anyone to use now, so let’s be so careful about this that we won’t even save pictures of horses on our computer, regardless of how beautiful and healthy they might seem to be.
Disclaimer: I just noticed that there might be millions of artists out there who make a living solely off of selling drawings of horses, so I just want to make it clear that I was joking. It’s apps such as drivers that you should be worried about; horse pictures are fine. Just steer clear from horse NFTs.
