Analysis: Flashback Spread Via Social Engineering, Then Java Exploits

Quote:
Kaspersky Lab‘s latest analysis of the Mac OS X Flashback botnet reveals that the botnet's malware was spread via drive-by downloads on hacked WordPress web sites.


From September 2011 until February 2012, the Flashback creators distributed the trojan through compromised WordPress sites that prompted users to download various iterations of a fake Adobe Flash Player update that was, in actuality, the Mac trojan.
