Recently patched Java flaw already targeted in mass attacks

Quote:
According to Oracle’s advisory at the time, the vulnerability only affects client, not server, deployments of Java. The company gave the flaw’s impact a 4.3 out of 10 rating using the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) and added that “this vulnerability can be exploited only through untrusted Java Web Start applications and untrusted Java applets.”

However, it seems that the low CVSS score didn’t stop cybercriminals from targeting the vulnerability. An exploit for CVE-2013-2423 was integrated into a high-end Web attack toolkit known as Cool Exploit Kit and is used to install a piece of malware called Reveton, an independent malware researcher known online as Kafeine said Tuesday in a blog post.
