Mac Flashback Flaw Reused by New Malware Campaign

Quote:
Malware criminals are on the hunt for Mac victims again, repurposing the Java-based vulnerability used by the Flashback bot to push a new drive-by web attack, security firm Sophos has reported.

It's a malware tactic that is taken for granted in the Windows world. A vulnerability in a common software interface -- in this case Java -- is hit multiple times by different malware campaigns, usually in quick succession.

The difference this time is that the attack is cunningly cross-platform, hitting Mac and Windows users.
