    Default Hide Your Windows, Mac And Linux Devices, ‘Cause Java-based Malware Is Coming!


    We have seen similar incidents in the past, may it be ad-related such as the Yahoo! incident, or directly involving the Java platform. It has been reported that a Java-based malware bot is currently ‘roaming’ around, infecting all three major operating systems: Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
    Researchers have revealed a fragment of botnet malware that is capable of infecting the latter mentioned OSes, being a cross-platform HEUR:Backdoor.Java.Agent.a, having been reported in a blog post published by Kaspersky Lab. It reportedly takes control of computers by exploiting CVE-2013-2465, a critical Java vulnerability which Oracle patched last June.
    The Java vulnerability is said to be present on Java 7 Update 21 and earlier versions. Once the malware has infected the computer, it copies itself to the autostart directory of its respective platform to ensure it runs at every startup. Compromised computers then report to an Internet relay chat channel that acts as a command and control server.
