re: 'Write Once, Pwn Anywhere': Less Than 1 Percent Of Enterprises Run Newest Version Of Java
So many companies focus on trying to attract "world class" security experts proficient in detecting zero-day vulnerabilities, when the reality is 95+% of attacks occur because the effort into these types of things is insufficient. Its unsexy and grunt work but getting the last 1% of user desktops fixed is hard work, identifying and patching the last 1% of servers, especially the sandbox vm's sitting under someone's desk, is hard work - but it is all necessary.

Tell us more about this. I thought this was fixed back in 2008?
