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.

"Sverdlove says it's simple for an attacker to target an older version of Java on an endpoint even if there are newer ones on the machine"

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