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: http://partners.immunityinc.com/movies/CANVAS-MBeanInstantiator.mov 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? -dave -- INFILTRATE - the world's best offensive information security conference.
