Internet Explorer , Adobe Flash Player, MS-Office and Java Vulnerabilities - Used/Leveraged on Malware Attacks / Exploits


You might be aware, I'm working on the Hook Analyser v3.1. As part of the development, I put / test certain test use cases. On this instance, I was interested to understand (and visualise) which (and how many) vulnerabilities have been exploited (by malware) for various client side applications - MS Internet Explorer, Adobe Flash Player, MS Office and Oracle Java.

Observations -

  1. MS Internet Explorer outstands as being most exploited or targeted software. This can be attributed to large market share, which makes it an attractive target.
  2. MS applications (Internet Explorer and MS Office) have been exploited more compared to Adobe Flash Player and Oracle Java.
