Thanks bjm;

Caught naked, without a towel in sight!

It's come a long way from a antisocial, anti-big business anti-whatever guy, hid in his basement. Don Corleone seems to have a better plan for malware.

I found most interesting, this quote of the 2010 Data Breach Investigation Report.
"It is very interesting to note that there were no confirmed cases in which malware exploited a system or software vulnerability in 2009 there wasn't a single confirmed intrusion that exploited a patchable vulnerability." (my highlight)
Does this mean that because of the efforts of Secunia and others the 'fence is too high'. leaving other means of exploit more desirable?

Keep 'em patched kids and pray that your bank doesn't leave the back door open.
