Shortcut Hiding

Created the Monday 18 March 2019. Updated 4 months, 3 weeks ago.

Windows shortcut can be used to store code that downloads a malicious file from the internet, or that stores the malicious file directly within the shortcut itself. This can make it difficult for antivirus software to detect the malicious application, as the file is not stored in a typical location on the computer. Additionally, the use of a shortcut can make it easier for the attacker to hide the malicious code and evade detection.
