Modified MDAC Exploit Tops Survey

Exploit Prevention Labs released the results of its May 2007 Exploit Prevalence Survey

ATLANTA -- Exploit Prevention Labs (http://www.explabs.com), developer of the LinkScanner line of safe surfing software that protects against exploits, phishing, and other social engineering attacks, today released the results of its May 2007 Exploit Prevalence SurveyT. Now in its thirteenth month, the Exploit Prevalence Survey is the industry's only survey to use real-world data to definitively measure the most widespread web-borne exploits. Results

are derived from automated reports submitted by LinkScanner users combined with data collected from all levels of the company's multi-faceted research network.

Roger Thompson, CTO of Exploit Prevention Labs and author of the monthly Exploit Prevalence Survey, noted steady activity among cybercriminals in May. For the third consecutive month since its release, the Modified MDAC Exploit was among the prevalence survey's top five most active exploits, this month once again

claiming the number one position with 32.9 percent of all occurrences.

"Modified MDAC is demonstrating impressive staying power - it's clearly proving a profitable exploit for the bad guys, despite the availability of a patch,"

said Thompson.

May's second most prevalent exploit was the MPack exploit, with 12.8 percent

of all occurrences. MPack, originallt named WebAttacker 2.0, was discovered in April, and mimics the distribution model of earlier WebAttacker-driven exploits.
