The rise in the exploitation of old PDF vulnerabilities

Via -
MS Malware Protection Center

quote:
Exploitation of software vulnerabilities continues to be a common way to infect computers with malware. Leveraging exploits allows malware authors to infect, disrupt, or take control of a computer without the user’s consent and typically without their knowledge. Exploits target vulnerabilities in operating systems, web browsers, applications, or software components that are installed on the computer. For details on exploit trends and insights on security vulnerabilities please refer to the latest edition of the Microsoft Security Intelligence Report.

Hmm... as Java and Flash security holes continue getting plugged, maybe the black hats are now migrating more heavily toward pdf exploits. ie: they've gotta target something to do their dirty deeds.
