Subject: Where is the Java-Apocalypse?

Java exploits are great - they're cross platform, they affect a wide
range of people and large enterprises, and they work 100% of the time,
assuming you can get a callback out (CANVAS uses HTTPS MOSDEF for this).

This is the awesome movie AlexM made - plus there's a bit more here,
since obviously we have a whole master class focusing on Java at
INFILTRATE in April:

This vulnerability was different in that it was an 0day (and has been
for some time) inside all the major malware dropper kits. And yet, no
massive screaming has really been reported. People aren't really
panicing. Just the same advice - boring even to people in the security
industry. You have to wonder - is the level of public infection so high
that something this pervasive doesn't move the needle?
