Blackhole outfitted with exploit for recently patched Java flaw

Quote:
The exploit for the recently patched CVE-2013-0431 Java vulnerability has been added to the Blackhole exploit kit, Trend Micro researchers report.

The fact was discovered through the analysis of the latest PayPal-themed spam run that leads to a page hosting the exploit kit.

Users are presented with a "Receipt for your PayPal payment to…" email, and are urged to verify the details of the payment order by clicking on a link included in the message.

Will the attacks of Java ever stop. It looks like the Normandy invasion or the Battle of the Bulge in programing.

When you install Java, it says right in the installer "3 Billion devices use Java". 3 Billion targets are awful tempting to criminals...

Why isn't Bill Gates slamming Scott McNealy about Java?
