A little-known security tool that lets you scan QR codes for malware is helping security researchers track malware that has infected a large number of sites.
In a recent blog post, security researcher Jason Schreiber said the app was one of several tools that had found malware in the past week.
He said the tool allowed users to scan QR code for “anything that might be an attacker’s botnet,” such as malicious files or ransomware.
The malware detection tool was released last week, just in time for Christmas.
Its creator, John Stokes, told Ars that the tool “can identify malware on the target’s machine in seconds.”
Stokes, who previously founded a cybersecurity company called FireEye, said the site’s detection could help investigators track a malicious botnet, and also help users to better protect themselves from attacks.
“I wanted to make a quick, inexpensive, and effective way for people to easily and securely scan for malware,” Stokes said.
“This is something that was built by a security team, not me.”
A few days later, the company published a new blog post about the new tool.
Its author, Andrew Goggin, wrote that the program “is one of the first to actually scan a QR code with a simple, user-friendly interface, and scan it for malware.”
“With this new detection tool, anyone can scan a malware QR code, and you’ll have the chance to scan for all the malicious code in the QR code without spending a dime,” he wrote.
“We want to make sure that you don’t have to spend a dime to make your scanning a lot faster and safer.”
The tool also lets users scan QRcodes for malware that’s already on a website, including some that might appear in an email, and it can scan URLs for malware-related sites.
A few weeks ago, Schreibt wrote that scanning QR codes on Twitter allowed him to see if a Twitter user had sent malicious files to his or her computer.
“The tool does a pretty good job of identifying malware in QR codes,” Schreibe wrote.
Schreibs tool, which was released this week, can be downloaded for free from the company’s website.
It can also be installed on a Mac or Windows machine, and has been tested on the Mac Pro.
The tool is free to use for anyone who has a browser that supports the “secure QR code” feature.
In the blog post announcing the new detection, Schreyibt said it’s also “easy to use and secure” and will be “used by hundreds of millions of people around the world.”
“The code is a simple one line to install,” he said.
The company has been offering the tool for about a year.
The company has said it wants to add more tools to the list in the coming months, adding that its goal is to have “more than 5,000 QR code scanning capabilities.”
For the past year, security researchers have been using QR code scanners to track down malware on a number of websites, including Twitter, Microsoft, Microsoft Exchange, and Twitter itself.
But the detection tool has been used mostly for websites that appear to be malicious in nature.
The QR code scanner is not the only tool that can detect malware on websites.
Google Chrome’s QR code reader is also capable of scanning QR code.
But Google also makes a tool that scans QR codes.
That tool can only be used on Chrome and not the Chrome Web Store.
Schreyibs QR code tool is also not the first QR code to be used to detect malware.
Google announced in May that it would begin making it available to developers in an upcoming version of its Chrome browser.
The tool was originally made available as a beta version to users in April, and was available to those who installed the Chrome browser on the Chrome web store in April.
