This is something i wonder of curiousity, if your photo is somehow compromised (i know how rare it is but still), if you upload the photo to lets say facebook, if than you download that same photo and open it will you get infected? Does the social media sites (facebook and so on) scan somehow the photos you upload? Is anyone aware?
