Malware written in Java has existed for many years, but attackers had not focused significant attention on Java vulnerabilities until somewhat recently. In 3Q10, the number of Java attacks increased to fourteen times the number of attacks recorded in 2Q10, driven mostly by the exploitation of a pair of vulnerabilities in version of the Sun (now Oracle) JVM: CVE-2008-5353 and CVE-2009-3867. Together, these two vulnerabilities accounted for 85 percent of the Java exploits detected in the second half of 2010.
I do hope they have a good control on these malicious software issues, we cant' expect to fail anymore, today some people's whole lives may depend on how secure they keep their data. I have a reliable antivirus, I use a password software every time I have the chance. If there's anything I need to do to improve my system security I'll definitely do it, there's always room for more.
