2015/07/23

The Register - (International) Security researchers from SophosLabs reported that the Angler exploit kit's (EK) prevalence in the underground malware market has ballooned from about 25 - 83 percent between September 2014 and May 2015, likely due to factors including its low cost and high traffic to Angler-infected Web sites. The EK recently incorporated three Adobe Flash zero-day flaws that were exposed in the breach of Hacking Team.
