No system is ever completely secure and preventing the presence of vulnerabilities is nearly impossible. Playing hide and seek with Stegomalwares is even adding one layer of complexity in our job to protect our business's environment. Whilst waiting for specific countermeasures (such as binary inspections, payload analysis, asymmetry techniques, etc.), I would focus on more achievable security measures such as proper network segmentation, and reduction of covert channels.

Since stenography is so hard to detect the best tools are defensive such as micro segmentation of network, data loss monitoring and prevention rules and monitoring of security events.
