Abstract

An unpatched JRE 1.7/Java 7 zero-day vulnerability (CVE-2012-4681) was recently found to be exploited by a malicious .JAR file hosted on a specific site. Successful exploit leads to the download of a backdoor, in effect allowing remote malicious users to execute their desired commands on the vulnerable system.

The zero-day exploit successfully runs in all versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox and Opera. According to a testing done by Metasploit, the vulnerability also runs on Google Chrome and Safari.
