QR or Quick Response are a barcode which once scanned displays some useful form of information such as redirecting you towards a URL. These types of forms are becoming increasingly popular as many businesses move towards forgoing traditional paper options like brochures and menus. With these codes popping up in all facets of life it has become rather normal to scan these without thinking. This can lead to issues as it opens up another vector for attack via cybercrime. Cybercriminals may place dangerous QR codes in a public place, once these are in place you may be tricked into scanning them. Once scanned your phone can be infected with malware.
