    So we know that there is a big push right now to get to air gaped systems and we just had an article a few months back about hidden commands in television advertisements triggering computers and potentially other devices such as smartphones. It seems like a natural progression for this type of thing to go after videos on the internet, hell even inaudible music files on websites you visit seems like potential targets for this type of thing.
