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.
- 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.
- MS applications (Internet Explorer and MS Office) have been exploited more compared to Adobe Flash Player and Oracle Java.
