Quote:
Malware protection is far from commodity, with effectiveness ranging between 54% and 90%, a 36% spread

Cybercriminals have between a 10% - 45% chance of getting past your AV with Web Malware (depending on the product)

Cybercriminals have between 25% - 97% chance of compromising your machine using exploits (depending on the product)

Expect use of exploits to increase since it is far more effective than traditional malware

What was tested:
Client-side exploits against applications such as Windows® Internet Explorer®, Mozilla® Firefox®, Apple® Quicktime®, and Adobe® Acrobat®.
Based on Jan's post at Exploit Toolkit Infects One in Ten Users via Outdated Java, they should have tested against Java as well.
